Worker Competency Verification

Worker Competency Verification is intended to help employers develop methods to allow them to verify that workers employed on a work site meet legislated requirements and construction industry expectations. This Best Practice is an aid to better equip employers with a knowledge base surrounding worker competency and the process needed to be duly diligent in assigning tasks to workers. In this document you can find definitions of types of verification, relevant legislation and sources of knowledge, as well as tools and templates for implementation. This best practice was released in 2011 at the request of the COAA Safety Committee.

The Construction Owners Association of Alberta recognizes that COAA’s office in Edmonton is located within Treaty 6 Territory and within the Métis homelands and Métis Nation of Alberta Region 4. We further acknowledge that what we call Alberta is the traditional and ancestral territory of many peoples, presently subject to Treaties 6, 7, and 8. Namely: the Blackfoot Confederacy – Kainai, Piikani, and Siksika – the Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, Stoney Nakoda, and the Tsuu T’ina Nation and the Métis People of Alberta. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations and we are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
