Health and Safety Management Program and Certificate of Recognition (COR)

 

Ensuring the health and safety of every person at Murray’s or around its equipment, whether management, employees, visitors, workers at other sites or the general public, is paramount at Murray’s.  For this reason, over the period of approximately a year and a half, Murray’s management produced and developed a Health and Safety Management Program, which is now instituted in all our operations.  We have received our Certification of Recognition (COR) in Health and Safety from our certifying partner, the Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA), co-signed  by Alberta Human Resources and Employment.  As part of this program, two of our senior staff act as internal auditors, making sure that all aspects of the program are actively upheld.  The COR program is also recognized by WCB, which they support by a premium reduction program for COR recipients.
 

The components of the program in health and safety which must be met to be certified include:

·        Management Leadership and Organizational Commitment

·        Hazard Identification Assessment

·        Hazard Control

·        Inspections

·        Qualifications Orientation and Training

·        Emergency Response

·        Accident and Incident Investigations

·        Program Administration
