2. CORTM Will Boost Your ROI
Speaking of multimillion-dollar contracts, CORTM will help boost your return on investment. How? You will have access to a larger market segment and will experience 57% less injuries than companies who are not COR™ certified. Wait a minute, how does this relate to your return on investment? Let us explain.
Companies who do not have a strong safety program are subject to more workplace injuries and incidents. This often leads to delays in the project which could result in penalties and high insurance costs. With 57% less injuries, CORTM can help save money on these costs, as you have taken the steps to ensure you are compliant and doing what is necessary to protect your workforce.
With a well-protected team thanks to a strong safety program, compliant with your jurisdiction, you will not only save money but save lives. This impact is priceless.
3. CORTM Will Strengthen Your Safety Culture
With a comprehensive safety program meeting all legislative requirements outlined by CORTM, you will help ensure your workforce gets home safely. COR™ dives into the nuances of safety, such as Hazard Assessment and Analysis, Preventative Maintenance, Training, and much more, to make sure that safety professionals are doing all they can to mitigate risks across the organization.
The process of achieving or maintaining CORTM forces you to take a closer look at your safety program to really assess its effectiveness. It makes you think about everything, from little details such as postings on safety boards to larger health risks like COVID-19. Gathering all this data and insight certainly is a team effort and requires communication between safety professionals and the frontlines. When the front-line workforce knows their feedback is valued and their safety is a priority, it will help boost morale and overall retention rates.
The entire process of working towards getting CORTM is meant to bolster your safety program and improve safety performance. This will in turn strengthen your organization’s safety culture, as team members work together towards creating a safer work environment.
CORTM will truly help propel your organization forward and drive safety performance. Let us help you achieve this goal.
