OSHA Issues New Emergency Temporary Standards for Health Care Workers

Mentioned, HomeCare Magazine

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is issuing an emergency temporary standard (ETS) to protect health care and health care support service workers from occupational exposure to COVID-19 in settings where people with COVID-19 are reasonably expected to be present. During the period of the emergency standard, covered health care employers must develop and implement a COVID-19 plan to identify and control COVID-19 hazards in the workplace.
