Hey Compliance Warriors!
This morning, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued an emergency temporary standard (ETS) to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the workplace. The ETS establishes binding requirements to protect unvaccinated employees of large employers (100 or more employees) from the risk of contracting COVID-19 in the workplace.
The rule covers all employers with a total of 100 or more employees with a few exceptions described below. Covered employers must develop, implement, and enforce a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy, with an exception for employers that instead adopt a policy requiring employees to elect either to get vaccinated or to undergo regular COVID-19 testing and wear a face covering at work.
The fact sheet below highlights some of the additional requirements of the ETS; employers should consult the standard for full details.
When does the ETS take effect?
- Employers must comply with most provisions by 30 days after the date of publication in the Federal Register
- Employers must comply with the testing requirement by 60 days after the date of publication in the Federal Register
