SOS: California Employers’ 9-Step Compliance Blueprint For New Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Safety Standard
The Cal/OSHA Standards Board recently approved an emergency regulation imposing new obligations on California employers related to COVID-19 prevention. This represents the most far-reaching formal rule-making by Cal/OSHA on COVID-19 and may be a preview of rule-making we can expect at the federal level under a Biden Administration. California employers do not have much time to comply with the new requirements – it will be effective as early as November 29, 2020. This webinar will educate you on these significant new requirements and steps you should immediately undertake to ensure compliance. This emergency standard is a significant game-changer, so this is one you will not want to miss. Topics covered will include the following elements of the new emergency standard:
- Who’s Covered? And Who’s Excluded?
- Written COVID-19 Prevention Program
- Notice Requirements of Potential COVID-19 Exposure and How They Stack Up Against AB 685
- Physical Distancing
- Face Coverings and PPE
- Exclusion of COVID-19 Cases and Exposures (and NEW Paid Time Off Requirement)
- Return to Work Criteria
- Next Steps
