The Medium Employer Certificate of Recognition (MECOR) Process is designed to help companies bridge the gap between small employer (SECOR) and large employer (COR) standards and certification processes. To be eligible to acquire certification through the MECOR Process, an employer must be either an existing SECOR holder, or an employer that is brand new to the COR program and have between 10 and 19 employees.

The employer must take the following steps:

  • Register with Enform (if new to COR)
  • If you are in Alberta, you also need to register your company in the WCB Partners in Injury Reduction program (if new to COR)
  • Successfully complete Enform’s two day Safety Program Development Course (if new to COR) or ensure refresher course requirements have been met (if existing SECOR holder)
  • Develop and implement a health and safety management system that meets provincial standards (if new to COR)
  • Select an Enform Certified H&S Auditor
  • Have a SECOR audit performed (by the certified external auditor) and achieve a passing mark (80% overall with no less than 50% in any one element)
  • Have your auditor submit the SECOR audit to Enform for Quality Assurance (QA) Review
  • A three year SECOR will then be issued for audits that meet the required standard
  • In the two subsequent maintenance years, an employer may use either an external Enform Certified H&S Auditor or have an employee become certified and serve as an internal Enform Certified H&S Auditor to perform maintenance audits using the COR audit protocol
  • In year two (the first maintenance year), the audit must score at least 50% overall for the employer to maintain their certification
  • In year three (the second maintenance year), the audit must score at least 70% overall and no less than 50% in each audit element for the employer to maintain their certification
  • After three successful years in the MECOR Process, an employer would move into the standard COR certification process
