Safety & Certifications: Get to Know the Acres Difference

Safety Management

Acres has a safety-first process.

Safety is a key organizational focus. We have developed a comprehensive Health, Safety & Environment program at Acres that has set the standard for safety management within our organization.

The Certificate of Recognition program (COR®) is an occupational health and safety accreditation program that verifies a fully implemented safety & health program which meets national standards.

Avetta helps enterprises assess and mitigate risk by handling the vendor pre-qualification process. They ensure that service providers conform to all health, safety, environmental, and other relevant legislation. 

The Canadian Construction Association’s Gold Seal Certification program establishes, administers and continuously improves national professional certification standards for construction management.

Acres boasts an incredible safety record.
