My re-certification audit is expiring between September 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020. Can I apply for a waiver?

Many employers have communicated their OSSE concerns in relation with COVID-19. As a certifying partner (CP), we have been working closely with WorkSafeBC in getting answers on how to remain safe and trying to work around COVID-19.

According to WorkSafeBC, audits for employers with COR certifications expiring between September 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020, while we are sensitive to the concern that employers may not be in ‘normal operating mode’ (NOM), or may not be operating in the latter half of the year, we are intending on moving forward with the program as normal for those certificates expiring after September 1, 2020.

We will be reviewing the COVID-19 outbreak over the summer and if there are continuing or additional restrictions we may extend the waiver program or take other action.
