COVID-19 SAFE WORKPLACE TRAINING
May 11, 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 May 4, 2021, the Oregon Occupational Health and Safety Division (OSHA) issued the permanent rule Addressing COVID-19 Public Health Emergency in All Oregon Workplaces. The permanent rule addresses several new issues, including the time frame for repeal date, face coverings, face shields, transportation, ventilation, removal and quarantine, cleaning, and recordkeeping.
Oregon OSHA issued the permanent rule upon expiration of the temporary emergency rule that was previously issued in November 2020.
