Baird Holm Webinar: OSHA’s New COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard: What Healthcare Employers Need to Know
From 06/25/2021 11:30 am until 06/25/2021 1:00 pm
On June 21, 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published its COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard (“ETS”), meaning the new regulations are now effective. Covered healthcare employers must comply with the ETS’ requirements by July 6, 2021, except for the provisions concerning physical barriers, ventilation, and training obligations, which have a compliance date of July 21, 2021.
For employers subject to OSHA’s jurisdiction, and with limited exceptions, the ETS applies in all settings where employees provide healthcare or healthcare support services.
This webinar will analyze the applicability of the ETS to employers and the ETS’ requirements – some of which healthcare employers implemented long before the ETS was issued, but many of which are entirely new and not directly related to preventing the spread of COVID-19 (e.g., the ETS’ paid leave requirements).
