SAFE CertifiedWorkSafeBC release COR review with temporary freeze on IM/RTW certifications

As a direct result of the Certificate of Recognition (COR) program review, WorkSafeBC has announced that effective January 1, 2013, there is a temporary freeze on any new Injury Management (IM) / Return to Work (RTW) COR certifications. This does not affect Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) COR certifications or SAFE certifications. Employers already IM/RTW certified will be allowed to continue doing maintenance audits in 2013 and 2014, if applicable. Recertifying employers will be allowed to recertify using the existing IM/RTW tool in 2013, but will have to transition to the new tool/process once it is available. Employers interested in obtaining a new IM/RTW certification have until June 30th, 2013 to do their IM/RTW audit. Employers (BASE, SEBASE and ISEBASE) committed to obtaining their first IM/RTW certification, and doing their audit, by June 30th, 2013 must submit written notice to the Council by February 20, 2013. WorkSafeBC has not set any timeline for an “unfreeze”.
