Health and Safety

We value a workplace that's safe and secure. As an organization, this means designing, implementing and managing our work to promote healthy and safe working conditions and attitudes as integral to everything we do.

This commitment includes a comprehensive safety plan to mitigate the spread of communicable diseases such as COVID-19, and to ensure safety is part of our corporate culture.

Through the active participation and co-operation of management, supervisors, workers and joint occupational health and safety committees, the CRD is proud to participate in the Certificate of Recognition (COR) Program.

Employers receive COR certification when they implement an occupational health and safety management system that has successfully passed an external audit and met WorkSafeBC's standards. As an employer, the CRD received COR certification in 2021 in recognition of our efforts to proactively improve workplace safety and our commitment to going above and beyond what is legally required.
