Rohit Group Receives Certificate of Recognition (COR) for Healthy & Safe Work Environment

Edmonton Alberta, September 26, 2012 – Rohit Group of Companies, a premiere Real Estate company that started off as an Edmonton home builder, is pleased to announce thatthe COR audit was successfully completed with flying colours once again!  The COR audit – which stands for Certification of Recognition – is a Government of Alberta health and safety initiative that is awarded each year to employers that develop a comprehensive management system that meets standards set by the Provincial government.  The certificate is awarded by the Alberta Employment and Immigration and co-signed by certifying partners.

This is the second year that the Edmonton home builder and developer, has been awarded this certification.  It reinforces the dedication of Rohit staff to a healthier and safer work environment – which is especially important at the great rate of expansion the company has seen in the last few years.  There are also financial incentives for businesses like Rohit Group of Companies that continue to achieve and maintain a valid COR through partnerships with the Workers Compensation Board.

 “This is remarkable. It was not an easy task for the teams on site and in office to keep up with all aspects of health and safety when the company was undergoing major expansion.” Says Pawan Kumar,Safety Officer for Rohit Group of Companies “Last year we set our target as 92% and I am thrilled to announce that we not only achieve this target, but surpassed it.  I can say a new safety culture is developing within the company which has already resulted in a reduced number of incidents in 2012 and the lowest WCB premium from the last 5 years.”
