OSHA to Issue Emergency Temporary COVID-19 Standard Affecting Employers with over 100 Employees

President Biden has announced his plan for combating COVID-19. As part of this plan, OSHA will be issuing an Emergency Termporary Standard requiring that employers with over 100 employees require employees to receive one of the COVID-19 vaccines or be tested on a weekly basis.

From the White House website:

"The Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is developing a rule that will require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require any workers who remain unvaccinated to produce a negative test result on at least a weekly basis before coming to work. OSHA will issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) to implement this requirement. This requirement will impact over 80 million workers in private sector businesses with 100+ employees."

Katt Training and Consulting will post the Emergency Temporary Standard when OSHA issues it and is ready to assist you in complying with this. Please contact us if you'd like more information.

OSHA Launches Regional Emphasis Program in New England

BOSTON – In Connecticut, a tree branch contacted a live high-voltage power line as a worker in an aerial lift cut it, electrocuting him. In Massachusetts, a falling tree branch struck and killed a worker cutting down oak trees, while a falling tree limb struck an elevated bucket lift, ejecting the worker whose fall was fatal. In nearby Rhode Island, a log conveyor rolled over a worker performing repairs, crushing and killing him.

These are among the 31 worker deaths in the tree trimming and removal, landscaping and site preparation industries since 2016 that the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration New England region has investigated. To reduce the risks workers in these industries face, OSHA's Boston regional office has established a Regional Emphasis Program that combines enforcement and outreach with employers. [ more ]
