On July 15, 2020, Virginia became the first state to issue mandatory COVID-19 workplace safety rules. The Virginia emergency temporary standard will be the first to go beyond OSHA’s non-mandatory guidance and establish minimum virus protection requirements. Look for other states to follow suit. Currently, OSHA has issued temporary enforcement guidance and indicated it will rely on the OSH Act’s general duty clause which requires employers to provide a workplace free from recognized hazards.
This webinar addresses COVID-19 regulatory updates, guidance, and best practices from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA), Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other state, federal and local agencies.
