Health, Safety & Environment requirements

Safety is a job we all share, whether you're a permanent EPCOR employee or a contractor. We value our relationship with contractors and suppliers, and we're committed to working with our business partners to maintain a leading health, safety and environmental (HSE) culture.


The following applies to all contractors/consultants who don't provide professional service exclusively within an office setting:

  • Maintain a good standing Certificate of Recognition (COR) by an approved Certifying Partner through Alberta Partnerships Partners in Injury Reduction (PIR), or equivalent program in the jurisdiction where work is to be performed. Note: COR is not required for contractors in Ontario.
  • Review of contractor's HS&E policies, procedures and performance by EPCOR.

Safety pre-qualification

Contractors who perform work that we identify as being high-consequence must be registered and pre-qualified by EPCOR's third party contractor registry (Avetta).

During the procurement process, potential contractors will be advised of any necessary documentation requirements.

Learn more about our contractor pre-qualification process.


Prior to the work commencing, contractors must satisfy EPCOR's contractor premobilization HSE requirements, as they pertain to low or high consequence work.

EPCOR may request contractors to conduct an evaluation of a premobilization assessment upon a subcontractor who is not registered in EPCOR's third party contractor registry (Avetta).
