What is a Safety Manual?

What is Construction Health and Safety Manual?

Our Safety Manuals are custom made for each client, created specifically for your company needs.

Our Safety Manuals will satisfy small (SECOR/ under 10 employees), and large (COR / over 10 employees) employer Certificate of Recognition requirements.

Each Health and Safety Manual contains the sections required by your local Construction Safety Association (CSA), to create a Safety Program.

Each Safety Manual is customized specifically to your company, and delivered to you via email.
The file you will receive is in Word format, so that you can easily print as many copies of the safety manual as you may need.

It is recommended you keep copies of Safety Manuals in:

Main Office
Lunch Room
Every Company Vehicle
This will ensure that all your workers have access to company Safety Manual at all times, when on job-site or main office.

Why Buy a Safety Manual?

Every company needs a Safety Manual.

Health and Safety Manuals are needed to:

  • Start the process for obtaining COR (Certificate of Recognition) with your local Construction Safety Association
  • Ensure Safety of your workers
  • Ability to bid on Government Projects, by showing you have a recognized Safety Program implemented
