Measures related to the Corona virus

Posted by Delta Safety on 26 maart 2020 11:10:55 CET

UPDATE 26 2020 11:07:18 PM

After objections from various trainingcenters, we can inform you that the news of 24 March from the SSVV has been adjusted:

The SSVV urgently advises all exam centers and trainingcenters to postpone group, physical VCA and SOG exams and courses for the time being. We cannot formally oblige them to do so, provided they always take their professional responsibility and make every effort to protect the health and safety of their candidates and employees. Our dispensation scheme also ensures that there is no immediate need for a large group of people to take exams now.

For the full Corona news from the SSVV, I refer you to: measures-vanwege-coronavirus

All the best


UPDATE 25 2020 13:46:57 PM

Following the additional measures announced yesterday by the government, SSVV decided yesterday that all group, physical VCA and SOG exams should be postponed to at least June 1, 2020. We recognize that this has major consequences for clients working in the Petrochemical industry.

We want to inform you that we do everything we can to find possibilities to help you. We believe that taking the exam one by one or in small groups with a minimum distance of 1.5 meters between the delegates should be possible and also acceptable. We will keep you informed.

All the best,



UPDATE 24 MAART 2020 12:56:14 PM

Following the news conference on March 23, 7.00 pm with the stricter measures, we are contacting the various authorities to find out what the possibilities are for us. The measures below are still in effect until further notice. We do our best to inform you as soon as possible via a new update.

Thank you,



UPDATE 23 MAART 2020 16:30:20 PM

In view of the further developments of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we inform you that due to the spread of the virus, the health and safety of the delegates and our employees will no longer be providing training until April 6.

We have tried, by applying various hygiene measures, to meet the demand of our clients for as long as possible, but unfortunately we had to decide otherwise. We deeply regret this.

Of course we are available for bookings after April 6 or other questions.

If your certificate expires during this period, don't worry! Below you can read what measures the various authorities have taken in response to the outbreak of the Corona virus:


OPITO has given the following opportunity for personnel, from who’s certificate expires the next 30 days, to apply for an extension of this certificate. This can be done by employers and self-employed personnel.


NOGEPA has already a standard dispensation procedure, of which you can apply for a 3 maximum of a 3 months dispensation. This procedure is extended with another 2 months due to the Corona crises. This means that you can follow a refresher course 5 months after your certificate expires in the coming period. This only applies for delegates who have already a refresher certificate. For delegates who need to refresh their basic training, there is a 2 months dispensation.


The Global Wind Organization has decided to extend the certificates for 60 days. This is applicable for the delegates who are not able to undergo the refresher trainings on time due to the Corona crises. This measurement is applicable until 1 June 2020. GWO states that this does not mean that the employees are competent in those two months, this is up to the judgement of the employer.

Orange Cross

The Orange Cross states that it is accommodating with expiry dates of certificates. We can conclude from this statement, that you can refresher your certificate on a later moment, if you are not able to refresh your certificate before the expiry date due to the Corona crises.


The NIBVH gives delegates the chance to refresh the certificates until 1 October. If these certificates cannot be refreshed between no wand the coming three months due to the Corona virus.


The SSVV has granted extension of certificates which expire after 12 march 2020 for a period of three months. This dispensation is applicable at this moment until 6 July 2020.

DELTA Safety Training will grant extension of certificates which cannot be refreshed due to the Corona crises.

We keep you updated!

Stay safe and healthy.

On behalf of DELTA Safety Training we would like to inform you about the measures we take as a training center.
The courses will continue until further notice, but DELTA Safety Training has taken various measures to prevent further spread of the virus.

DELTA Safety Training follows RIVM's (The Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) advice on hygiene measures to prevent the spread of the Corona virus.

In case of complaints of a cold, cough or fever, we advise people to stay at home and to reschedule the training. This also applies to people who have been in a risk area in the past period.

Safely working is an essential spearhead within the Wind industry. In addition to the official regulations that must be met, organizations have to deal with increasing demands from clients. For companies working in this sector, it is not always clear which conditions employees must meet. In this article we would like to explain the distinction between the legally imposed safety requirements in the Wind industry and those of the client.
