About PIR & COR

AMHSA COR logoPartnerships in Injury Reduction is a joint project of Alberta Labour - Partnerships, the Workers’ Compensation Board - Alberta, and employers, represented by one of Alberta’s 13 certifying partners. AMHSA is the certifying partner for the municipal sector. All of the certifying partners meet regularly as a group with Alberta Labour - Partnerships and WCB – Alberta to discuss issues and concerns common to all the certifying partners and to explore ways to improve the PIR program.

It is recognized that a meaningful and well-implemented health and safety management system will lead to a reduction in workplace losses, injuries, and illness. The program helps municipalities earn financial incentives (refunds) to encourage implementing effective health and safety management systems. All Alberta municipalities are eligible to participate in this voluntary program. 

Certifying Partners such as AMHSA issue a certificate which recognizes that an employer’s health and safety management system has been evaluated by a certified auditor and meets PIR standards. Municipalities must receive a COR to qualify for a WCB rebate.
