Presentation and Discussion OSHA Emergency Temporary Standards
On January 21, 2021, President Biden signed an Executive Order directing OSHA to consider emergency temporary standards related to COVID-19.
If the emergency temporary standards are deemed necessary, the order, titled "Protecting Worker Health and Safety," calls on OSHA to issue them by March 15th. The order also directs OSHA to update COVID safety recommendations for businesses within two weeks, review its enforcement efforts, and study whether an emergency temporary standard is necessary. If deemed necessary, the agency must issue the emergency standard by mid-March.
The U.S. Department of Labor announced today that its' Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued stronger worker safety guidance to help employers and workers implement a coronavirus protection program and better identify risks that could lead to exposure and contraction. Last week, President Biden directed OSHA to release clear guidance for employers to help keep workers safe from COVID-19 exposure.
