Accardi Schaeffers Consulting is dedicated to excellence, prioritizing the safe, efficient, and successful completion of civil engineering projects while upholding the highest industry standards. As evidence of our commitment, we proudly hold ISO 45001 and COR certifications—the global standard for occupational health and safety.
What is ISO and COR certification?
ISO certification is an internationally recognized mark of quality management systems. It signifies that a company adheres to the strictest standards in various aspects of its operations. In our case, ISO certification is a validation of our commitment to delivering top-notch services to our clients in the infrastructure and municipal sectors.
ISO 45001 is an international standard for occupational health and safety management systems. It provides a framework for organizations to identify and control work-related hazards and improve employee safety and well-being.
The Certificate of Recognition (COR®) is aimed at driving positive workplace behaviour and practices that lead to improved performance. It is currently being used across Canada and is a pre-qualification requirement for many contractors working in and out of the province and on public- and private-sector projects.
