Description

Webinar on ISO, CSA, COR Safety Management Systems - Tuesday, March 30th - 10 to 11:30 a.m.

As early as January 1, 2023 contractors wishing to bid work to the City of Ottawa will need to be safety certified under 1 of 3 safety management standards all requiring an independent audit. Click HERE to read the Technical Bulletin issued by the City of Ottawa in January 2020.

The 3 acceptable H & S management standards to the City of Ottawa are:

  • ISO 45001:2018 - Here is LINK to ISO website
  • CSA Z45001:19 -Here is LINK to CSA website
  • COR 2020 (Certificate of Recognition) - Here is LINK to IHSA website

The City of Ottawa is phasing implementation based upon construction contract value. Timelines for certification are as follows:

  • January 1, 2023 – construction contracts valued over $10 million
  • January 1, 2025 – construction contracts valued over $1 million
  • January 1, 2026 – construction contracts and subcontracts valued over $100 thousand

Please join NCHCA, OCA and CLAEO, on Tuesday, March 30, 2021 from 10:00 to 11:30, for a panel discussion with Q & A on the Health & Safety Management Systems acceptable to the City of Ottawa. The panel of health and safety experts will discuss the pros and cons of the three acceptable systems.

This will be of major benefit for those firms who have yet to dive deeper into getting safety certified. Take away lessons will be learning of the strengths and weaknesses of the 3 standards, the overall commitment required to obtain and maintain certification, expected timelines, cost and lessons learned.
