Emil Anderson – COR gap analysis and WIVA preparation￼
The Emil Anderson group (EAG) is a well-known, long-established group of companies providing heavy construction services in the transportation and industrial infrastructure sectors.
EAG has held COR certification for many years and conducted annual joint audits for 3 different companies and was selected by WorkSafeBC to undergo a WorkSafeBC Initiated Verification Audit (WIVA) as part of the quality assurance process. Stakes were high for EAG. If the audit failed EAG could have potentially lost their COR which would have directly resulted in a loss of work due to COR being a pre-qualification requirement for many clients.
The WIVA was to be conducted by a certified external auditor appointed by the certifying partner, BC Construction Safety Alliance.
There had been recent turnover in the safety department and EAG was looking for a qualified safety professional to assist in preparation for the audit scheduled about 1 month following initial contact with DCS Safety.
2 years later, based on demonstrated performance during the WIVA project, DCS Safety was awarded a sole-sourced contract to conduct the joint re-certification audit for an expanded scope of 5 different EAG companies.
EAG was once again successful in COR re-certification.
