Letter of Clarification on Certifications
Date: June 30, 2020
This is a clarification on the DOSH Directive 1.60. Compliance staff will exercise enforcement discretion concerning periodic training and certifications that expired as of February 28, 2020 or later. The following are examples of required training and certifications, but it is not an all-inclusive listing:
Asbestos supervisor and worker certification cards
This temporary enforcement discretion policy will apply until further notification; however, employers/employees must come into compliance as soon as guidelines permit. As of June 30, 2020, this variance still applies.
Members can still perform work on certifications which have expired from Feb 28, 2020 onward.
