In light of the coronavirus pandemic, and CDC guidance on social distancing, DOSH is making some temporary policy changes in the handling asbestos supervisor and worker refresher training.
Asbestos workers and supervisors with expiration dates between March 13th 2020 and June 13th 2020 will have a three (3) month extension on their certification. If you take your refresher class within that time frame, there is no need to take the state test.
Example 1: A supervisor’s certification states an expiration date of March 18th, 2020. They will be able to work until June 18th, 2020. If they take a refresher course before June 18th, 2020 they will not need to take the state test.
Example 2: A worker’s certification states an expiration date of June 5th, 2020. They will be able to work until September 5th, 2020. If they take a refresher course before September 5th, 2020 they will not need to take the state test.
When an official DOSH Directive regarding asbestos worker and supervisor certifications is issued, the guidance in that directive will replace the guidance in this email.
