Sunik Roofing is proud to announce that we received our COR !(Certificate of Recognition)!
It is awarded to employers who develop health and safety programs that meet established standards. Certificates are issued by Alberta Jobs, Skills, Training and Labour and are co-signed by Certifying Partners. Achieving and maintaining a valid COR is required for earning a financial incentive through the WCB Partnerships in Injury Reduction program.
Maintaining a safe work place at all times has been a top priority of Sunik Roofing since our founding in 1986. We are a proud member of the Alberta Construction Safety Association and have implemented our own safety program to which all of our crews must comply. Ensuring your peace of mind and maintaining a safe environment for our employees is highly important to us.
Did You Know?
As of October 2007, all employers in the roofing industry must comply with the fall protection provisions in Part 9 of the Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) code. Employers were given a 6-month transition period that followed the expiration of OHS code Part 38 regarding residential roofing. The transition allowed employers time to incorporate traditional fall-protection options into their operations.
The change in code is part of the government’s priority of enhancing workplace safety and maintaining safe and secure communities for all residents. Roofers are now under the same fall protection requirements as other industries – another step toward making Alberta worksites safer.
Please contact us if you have questions regarding our safety policy and procedures.

Letter to Sunik Roofing Safety Officer
I just wanted to compliment Sunik Roofing and yourself for the recent television and radio advertisements that have been airing in the local media.
Making an issue regarding safety is, in my opinion, a very proactive thing to do and reinforces in the public’s mind that it is not just about a roof but shows a professional attitude to both the consumer and the employees. As you are painfully aware, the roofing industry does not have the best safety track record and anything that can be done to improve it is definitely a step in the right direction.
A number of friends and neighbours have commented to me that they too have heard the ads and when the term safety comes up, they find it refreshing and different.
Once again, congratulations to Sunik Roofing and yourself for being industry leaders and not followers.
