Further short-term extensions of diving medical certificates

Published on: July 31, 2020

All divers who currently hold a valid WorkSafeBC diving medical certificate expiring on or before June 1, 2020, may continue to dive until October 1, 2020. 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.
