Given the new COVID-19 Alert Level 4, in-class training courses may not be widely available to workers at this time. As such, WorkplaceNL is extending the expiry date for safety training certificates issued for Fall Protection, Confined Space Entry, Mine Rescue, and Traffic Control Person Level II, which expire(d) between January 1st, 2022 and February 28th, 2022. These certificates will now expire on February 28th, 2022.
During this time, employers and supervisors must continue to assess their worker’s competency to ensure safe work. If competency is not satisfactory, action should be taken accordingly.
