The Occupational and Safety Health Administration (OSHA) last week published an Interim Enforcement Response Plan that provides guidance to OSHA personnel on handling complaints, referrals and severe illness reports related to the COVID-19 pandemic. It provides insight for employers on OSHA’s intent to prioritize complaint investigations relating higher risk of COVID-19 exposure with the hope of minimizing on-site inspections. Since the pandemic arrived in the US, the agency has received an ever-increasing number of complaints from employees raising concerns about a lack of personal protective equipment (PPE) in the workplace as well as a lack of training on appropriate standards regarding COVID-19 in the workplace. The plan defines three risk exposure categories (High/very high; medium exposure; and low exposure), and provides OSHA personnel guidance for assessing the COVID-19 risk level of each workplace to determine its priority level. In addition, the plan provides further guidance for determining whether an in-person inspection is warranted. More information is available here on OSHA.
