The Easiest (and Most Affordable) Way to Go Paperless: Scan-to-Zero

West Canadian

It started with a filing cabinet. Then a closet. Eventually, your organization's paper records collection grew so much that your office space couldn't sustain it, so you entered into a contract with a file storage vendor. Sound familiar?

Today, the average organization increases its paper consumption by 22% each year, which means there's no sign of that growth stopping anytime soon.

West Canadian Achieves Certificate of Recognition (COR) in Alberta

West Canadian

June 18, 2020 — West Canadian Digital Imaging Inc. (West Canadian) today announced the achievement of their Workplace Safety Certificate of Recognition (COR) from the Government of Alberta.

The Certificate of Recognition is a designation granted to organizations whose Health and Safety Management Systems meet Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) standards as evaluated by an external certified auditor. Many organizations in government, oil and gas and other safety-conscious industries have made it a requirement for vendors to have their COR in order to bid on work. This designation gives the company a competitive advantage that few organizations who provide similar services to West Canadian have.

“Our Certificate of Recognition is a reflection of a dedicated staff who actively participate in maintaining a safe work environment each day," says Heather Rogers, Human Resources Manager. "We have always believed that our people are our most important resource."

"The achievement of our COR makes a clear statement of our commitment to the safety of our employees, especially at a time where health and safety are top of mind. This is an incredible achievement that our organization is very proud of." — Karen Brookman, President & CEO

The process to attain a Workplace Safety COR is thorough. A two-week audit by a certified external party consists of a review of company documentation including maintenance records, visitor logs, safety meeting records and health and safety policies and procedures. Employees are randomly selected for interviews to ensure there is a maintained level of awareness and involvement in the organization’s health and safety program.

To learn more about Alberta’s guidelines for the Workplace Safety COR, visit the Government of Alberta.

Businesses across North America are preparing to re-open their doors safely and with precaution. As we begin to return to a new normal, organizations must not discount the anxiety that many of us may feel as we navigate change and uncertainty.

According to the Government of Canada’s Canadian Perspectives Survey from April 2020 , 29% of us opted to work from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

With businesses looking at reopening, and many of us returning to the office after months of working from home, it’s a natural response to feel concern about health and safety. The same survey reported that 54% of respondents are “very” or “extremely” anxious about the health of their loved ones, and 36% of are concerned for their own. It also doesn't help our anxiety that when doors finally do reopen, we won't be returning to “business as usual”.
