New Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Safety Standard: Another Burden for Employers
COVID-19 continues to place pressure on employers and despite a fierce opposition effort from the employer community, the Cal-OSHA Standards Board unanimously voted to adopt new emergency regulations for the prevention of COVID-19 in the workplace. These new regulations require employers to shoulder the cost of pay and benefits for workers excluded from the workplace due to COVID-19 concerns.
The regulations provide new instructions to employers on a variety of workplace safety topics, including face coverings, ventilation, disinfection and sanitation, responding to outbreaks, and employee travel in employer vehicles.
Employers should understand the upcoming burdens and key aspects of the regulations to develop site-specific plans to ensure compliance with these detailed safety regulations.
