Health, Safety & Environment requirements

The following requirements have been established in order to identify the programs, processes, and practices that EPCOR Contractors must comply with:

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

  • Maintain a 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.


EPCOR may review a contractor's health, safety and environmental policies, procedures and performance. This may include the requirement of a certificate of recognition (or equivalent audit certificate) through a certifying partner.

Contractors performing high consequence work for EPCOR will be required to register in with EPCOR's third-party Contractor Registry. Contractors who achieve and maintain a compliant status with EPCOR's contractor registry have met EPCOR's minimum requirements.

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