Course Description:
Employers should anticipate that the federal government’s role in regulating employment-related coronavirus hazards will increase significantly in early 2021. It has been widely reported that the incoming Biden administration will prioritize a new emergency temporary OSHA standard addressing workplace coronavirus hazards. New and substantially increased federal regulation and enforcement would appear even more likely in light of the recently announced appointment of a new Secretary of Labor, Martin Walsh, a former head of the Boston Building and Construction Trades Council, who has been an advocate for employee workplace safety.

New federal COVID-related employee health and safety requirements may be enacted quickly. OSHA has the authority to promulgate a new standard without any advance notice if it shows as a part of the rulemaking process that employees are exposed to a new grave danger and that the emergency standard is necessary. In addition, last year the House of Representatives proposed legislation that would require employers to conduct a coronavirus hazard assessment, develop an exposure control plan including social distancing and health screenings, conduct training and report to OSHA any workplace outbreak. Whether in the form of a new OSHA standard or legislation, employers should prepare to comply with new anticipated workplace requirements.

This program will include:

· Complying with anticipated or newly enacted federal coronavirus-related workplace hazard, including how to develop an exposure control plan,
· Responding to employee complaints about workplace coronavirus-related issues, and
· Handling an OSHA inspection and any resultant citations and proposed penalties
