Expanded COR Audit Protocol Guidelines Launched

Enform is launching v1.2 of the 2013 COR Audit Protocol effective June 1, 2016. While the questions and scoring remain the same, the guidelines have been expanded to help new auditors and internal auditors better understand expectations on gathering evidence, generating a score, and writing up their audit reports. For more information please click here.

Also, a change was made to the Justification Section in the eC-AuditTool to meet governing body requirements. Click here to view information slides on those changes.

Cost Savings Strategy - COR Maintenance Audits

Employers have a substantial cost savings strategy available to them for COR Maintenance Audits if they train an employee to serve as their internal auditor.  Companies can save the cost of hiring a contract external auditor for their maintenance audits by sending an internal staff member to take Enform’s Certified Health and Safety Auditor Program.

Maintenance audits are required for 2 of the 3 year COR cycle.  This would provide valuable cost savings for both maintenance years.
