Short-term extensions of diving medical certificates
All divers who currently hold a valid WorkSafeBC diving medical certificate expiring on or before June 1, 2020, may continue to dive until August 1, 2020, when examinations will resume. Please note that this date may change depending on the public health situation and we will post a notice at that time.
Please also note that exceptions to this include any diver who is returning to work after hyperbaric treatment or significant illness or injury, including COVID-19. These divers still need to be assessed and cleared to return to diving.
No medical examinations for new diving medical certificates will be conducted until changes are made to public health recommendations.
