“We knew in 2018 that we wanted to create a safety program to meet the new laws coming into effect and to save money on WCB. We had met with consultants, who were too expensive, and looked at a provincial safety association. That was too generic and complicated. We just were not sure where to go.” recalls Caitlin McKeen. “Then we found Safe2day through their membership with the Motor Dealers Association. The combination of document templates, software and coaching allowed us to go from no program to COR in under a year.”
With their Safe2day subscription and coaching from Larry, Jack Carter Chevrolet was able to install their safety program, build a safety committee and create the documentation required to pass the Alberta Certificate of Recognition (COR) audit by the end of 2018. This achievement allowed them to start receiving WCB rebates of 10% in 2019 and 2020
“The program has continued to improve as Ryan and Larry have made it more industry specific and continued to develop the software,” continues McKeen “We were happy to use the program in our newest store, Carter Cadillac, as well. It’s nice to know that any time we have a question the answer is a call or email away.”
"We see the COR program as an untapped resource for Dealerships" says Ryan Hurlbut, President of Safe2day "While the program is a little bit more structured than a basic safety compliance program, the benefits are potentially much greater as well. This is an area where stores can gain a real competitive edge by qualifying for both WCB rebates and big fleet bid tenders."
