OSHA's New Mandatory COVID-19 Guidance for Healthcare Employers and Employees
Waller, June 2021

Back in mid-March, the Department of Labor (DOL) notified key stakeholders of the likelihood it would be issuing new regulations concerning COVID-19. Yesterday, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) of the DOL issued the long-awaited Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) regarding safety requirements that healthcare employers must implement and adhere to in light of COVID-19. Despite the fact that the healthcare sector has remained ahead of the curve on various safety protocols and CDC guidelines, OSHA has made clear that its existing standards and regulations were inadequate and needed to have teeth...

Waller, March 2021

Yesterday, the Department of Labor informally notified key stakeholders that it will soon be issuing new regulations concerning COVID-19.  One expectation is that the regulations will require employers to not only implement COVID-19 prevention programs but also follow CDC guidelines.  Though OSHA has not yet confirmed publicly, a spokesperson for the agency recently revealed: “The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has been working diligently, as appropriate, to consider what standards may be necessary, and is taking the time to get this right.”  Employers should expect OSHA to follow through with more...

First State Enacts Permanent COVID-19 Occupational Health and Safety Requirements
Waller, February 2021

Virginia is now the first state in the nation to enact permanent COVID-19 workplace safety and health standards.

The program promulgates a new standard that supersedesVirginia’s Emergency Temporary Standard from July 2020.
