LIUNA Training & Education now has a website for information on COVID-19 which includes a 4-hour Infectious Disease Awareness Training course for free to all members. It includes information and resources for infectious diseases and safe processes.
This could lead to future work opportunities for members.
…just a brief update to let you know what’s going on with training.
It’s been an unusual and trying time for everyone, and we wanted to let you know that we’re thinking of you and your families, and what we can do to serve you, our brothers and sisters.
Until things get back to where we can all be safe convening in person, we will have to get creative and be flexible. We’re currently in the process of exploring some alternate training delivery options, and will provide more information once we get the details ironed out.
In the meantime, we wish you good health and safety. Be well!
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.
If you have any questions, please contact DOSHAsbestosInfo@lni.wa.gov.
