Cooper Equipment Rentals locations achieve COR certification

Nov. 20, 2022

Cooper Equipment Rentals, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, has received the Certificate of Recognition (COR) in Ontario as administered by the Infrastructure Health & Safety Association (IHSA).

COR is an occupational health and safety accreditation program that assesses employers’ health and safety management systems to ensure they adhere to national standards. Cooper participated in the audit process, consisting of employee interviews, documentation reviews, and observation techniques to evaluate its ability to identify, assess, and control risks to its employees. 

Over the past five years, Cooper has adapted its health and safety policies and procedures nationwide to achieve COR certifications in Alberta, British Colombia and Ontario. 

“Our team is exceptionally proud to receive our latest COR certification and establish Cooper as the only equipment rental operation in Ontario to hold this certification,” said Darryl Cooper, president and chief operating officer, Cooper Equipment Rentals. 

“This highly reputable designation is a recognition of Cooper’s ongoing commitment to safety,” said Dave Badger, environment and safety manager at Cooper. “To pursue this optional certification throughout a global pandemic highlights the importance of health and safety to our team with involvement from our branches all the way to senior management.” 

With this latest certification, 97 percent of eligible Cooper Equipment Rentals locations are now COR certified. “We’re proud that an external auditor has toured our facilities and met with our teams across Ontario and found that our health and safety management systems are compliant with COR standards,” Badger said.
