Edgett Excavating Secures BCCSA COR™ Certification

At Edgett Excavating we believe that accident prevention is both a moral obligation and good business. The protection of our employees, the public, and the environment is essential to the efficient and successful completion of every project. 

As civil contractors, we pride ourselves on completing high-quality projects on schedule and on budget, but nothing – including costs or deadlines – ever justifies compromising on safety. 

Protecting the health and safety of our employees and others on the job-site goes far beyond simple compliance. It has become part of our internal culture and an assurance for our staff that we are committed to building long-term relationships with them. Our joint health and safety committee is a dedicated group of management and staff, with expertise to implement and monitor safety policies and guidelines. You can read more about our commitment to safety on our website at – https://edgettexcavating.ca/our-commitment-to-safety/

The latest addition to our list of safety accreditations is the BCCSA’s Large COR™ (for companies with 20 or more employees) Certification. 

We are proud to offer the Edgett team this further proof of our commitment to ongoing well-being and safety of our team.


The BCCSA’s Certificate of Recognition (COR™) is a voluntary incentive program that recognizes companies who develop and implement health and safety and injury management systems that meet an industry standard.

We have taken a strategic approach to workplace safety and are committed to reducing both the human and financial costs of workplace injuries. COR™ certification is offered by WorkSafeBC and delivered through the BC Construction Safety Alliance.

The Benefits of COR™ include:

  • Making a strong public statement about Edgett Excavating’s commitment to protecting the wellbeing of workers and maintaining a culture of safety on jobsites.
  • Many general contractors require subcontractors to have a recognized safety program in place as a prequalification to bid on projects. Now with COR™ Edgett Excavating meets that requirement.

You already expect Edgett to get the job done, now you know it will get done safely. Have a project, have a question, give us a call. 250.339.6100. We have a diverse team and equipment capable of large and small projects all over Vancouver Island.
