At Maple Group Inc. we strive for excellence in all aspects of our operations, and maintain a reputation as a leader in our industry. The high level of safety, reliability, and professionalism that we bring to the table is the foundation of our company, and without these three key factors there would be a low level of success in our daily activities. We currently hold a valid Certificate Of Recognition (COR) from the Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA). We are registered withISNetworld, ComplyWorks, CanQual and PICS.
We consistently maintain high scores on our yearly audits which allows us to keep the COR, and to continue improving our safety program.
We are registered with ISNetworld, ComplyWorks , CQN AND PICS where we meet all compliance requirements, and have a safety program that is always progressing which allows us to build mutually beneficial relationships with employers and other contractors.
We are members in good standing with the Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA) which allows us to stay up to date on new regulations regarding our industry as well as a great way to allow our employees to continually upgrade their safety courses and advance their careers. We are in the process of sending select employees for leadership training at the ACSA so that all levels of our organization are being provided a higher level of supervisor training all the way from our foreman/supervisor positions right to senior management. With this training it helps encourage growth and advancement within the company, and helps to retain employees since we promote from within to build a stronger organization.
“Our safety program and training program go above any beyond any legislated requirements which is one of the many reasons we are an industry leader and our safety record proves how effective our programs are.”
Certificate of Recognition
A Certificate of Recognition (COR) is a document issued jointly by a Certifying Partner and the Government of Alberta through the Partnerships in Injury Reduction (PIR) program. The COR recognizes that an employer’s health and safety management system has been evaluated by a certified auditor and found to meet a provincially recognized standard. Achieving and maintaining a COR is required to earn financial incentives from the Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB), and it is not unusual for Alberta corporations to expect bidding contractors to hold a valid COR.
Partnerships in Injury Reduction
First established in 1989, the Partnerships in Injury Reduction (PIR) program is a voluntary process whereby government works in partnership with employers and worker representatives to promote a strong workplace safety culture for Alberta businesses.
PIR is designed to encourage injury prevention and the development of effective workplace health, safety and disability management systems. PIR is a voluntary program that operates through the combined efforts of the Workers’ Compensation Board – Alberta, Alberta Employment and Immigration, industry partners, safety associations, employers and labour groups. PIR is also a component of Alberta Employment and Immigration’s “Partnerships” initiative. This initiative is based on the concept that when employers and workers build effective health and safety systems, the human and financial costs of workplace injuries and illnesses can be reduced. The Partnerships program is built on the belief that more can be achieved through a collaborative approach, than by a regulatory, interventionist approach alone.
Effective health and safety management systems have been shown to have an impact by reducing workplace injury and illness, helping eliminate their social and financial effects, and strengthening the business success of participating employers. The Partnerships program adopts a business-like approach to health and safety issues, empowering corporate leaders in the province to take a pro-active role in creating a climate where employers and workers become partners in ensuring a healthier and safer work culture, and ultimately leading to greater industry self-reliance and less government intervention.
Workers Compensation Board
The Workers’ Compensation Board is a statutory corporation created by government under the Workers’ Compensation Act to administer a system of workplace insurance for the workers and employers of the province of Alberta. The organization is employer funded to provide cost-effective disability and liability insurance.
Workers’ compensation compensates injured workers for lost income, health care and other costs related to a work-related injury.
Alberta Construction Safety Association
The Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA) is a non-profit organization funded and directed by industry. The Association consists of construction industry volunteers supported by a team of professionals based out of offices in Edmonton, Calgary and in Fort McMurray. All the people involved with the ACSA, from the origin of the idea to the present, share a common vision: through cooperative efforts of all those involved, the construction environment in Alberta will be the safest anywhere. The mission of the Alberta Construction Safety Association is to provide quality advice and education for the construction industry that will reduce human suffering and financial costs associated with workplace incidents.
