COVID-19 SAFE WORKPLACE TRAINING
June 29, 2021
The last few weeks have seen seismic shifts in the COVID-19 workplace safety landscape. Below is a state-by-state summary of some of the most important changes (and continued requirements):
On June 22, 2021, the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) issued revised workplace rules adopting the Federal OSHA Emergency Temporary Standards for healthcare workers.
The revised workplace rules supersede MIOSHA’s COVID-19 workplace emergency rules, adopted on May 24, 2021. As a result, the workplace safety requirements outlined in the emergency rules – now superseded – are no longer in effect, including masks, social distancing, and employee training.
