Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Emergency Regulation Updates Released, Adopted, Then Rescinded
June 10, 2021
Despite actions last week to update the COVID-19 Emergency Regulations, Cal/OSHA acted last night to keep the existing ETS standards for employers in effect until their next meeting on June 17, 2021. This action came after a presentation by CDPH on California Guidance for COVID-19 prevention and public comments about inconsistencies and employer concerns.
CSAC, along with a coalition of other employers, submitted written comments prior to last week’s hearing, as did dozens of other employer advocates. CSAC will remain engaged with Cal/OSHA’s hearing process and provide updates as they are available.
