OSHSB Publishes Proposed Third COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard

The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (OSHSB) this week published a notice of its proposed readoption of the COVID-19 emergency temporary standard (ETS). The current ETS was adopted by OSHSB on December 16, 2021, and became effective on January 14, 2022.

The emergency filing of regulations proposes to adopt new sections relative to COVID-19 precautions in California workplaces, as well as establish further alignment with other state guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). The proposed regulation is set to be considered by OSHSB during its April 21 meeting.
