TTC Revises Implementation Dates for COR
The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is implementing the Certificate of Recognition (COR™) safety program as a prequalification standard for its construction projects. The COR™, issued by the Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA), will supplement TTC's current safety requirements, such as WSI B clearance certification and corporate and site specific safety plans, prior to commencement of any construction work. Construction contractors' bidding on future TTC projects will be required to have COR™ in order to be considered for any award and further, must maintain certification in good standing for the duration of any awarded contract.
TTC will continue implementing the COR™ requirement in a phased approach to ensure that the number of certified contractors is sufficient to allow for competitive bidding. Consequently, as of November 17, 2017 there has been a need to revise the target implementation dates.
