Certificate Extensions

In recognition that this office closure will prevent some workers from being able to take courses to renew their certificates, WorkSafe BC and the Energy Safety Canada will be offering a certificate extension for the following courses:

  • Occupational First Aid and Equivalent certificates  

    • For these courses, any certificates that are due between March 1, 2020 and June 30 2020, will be granted an extension by WorkSafeBC.  These certificates will now be acceptable in the workplace will now be acceptable in the workplace for 90 day beyond their original expiry date.  Certificates will not be reprinted. First aid attendants and employers do not need to take any actions to qualify for the extension. 

  • H2S Alive

    • For these courses, any Certificate of Completion previously issued by Energy Safety Canada that has an expiry date between January 1, 2020 and September 1, 2020 will be deemed by Energy Safety Canada to have not expired and will remain valid up to and including September 1, 2020. 

Things are changing quickly, and we will continue to keep you informed. We continue to monitor Health Authorities in areas where we operate to ensure we are following the latest guidance. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this unprecedented time.

Stay Safe.
