Nova Scotia Automobile Dealers Safety Association

Safety Audits

The highest standard for safety certification in Nova Scotia is the Certificate of Recognition (COR) issued to workplaces that go through a safety audit process and meet a high standard for their workplace health & safety program.

In some industries, such as construction, proof of obtaining a Certificate of Recognition is required before a company can bid on projects.  While this requirement does not exist for automobile dealerships, any employer can go through the Certificate of Recognition process.  Obtaining a COR will demonstrate to your employees and customers that your commitment to safety is exceptional.

While NSADSA does not have a Certificate of Recognition program at this time, the following list of companies can provide your dealership with an audit process that can lead to obtaining a COR:

You do not need to complete the full COR process in order to undertake a safety audit that will help you identify safety concerns and staff training needs within your workplace.  Nova Scotia has many OH&S Consultants trained to provide auditing services to employers.  A database of OH&S Consultants can be found on the Department of Labour's website:  http://www.wcb.ns.ca/wcbns/index_e.aspx?DetailID=844
