On April 21, 2022, Cal-OSHA approved the third adoption of the Covid-19 Emergency Temporary Standards (“ETS“) that that will likely go into effect next week!
While much of the current ETS will remain the same, there are some significant changes that business and employers should keep in mind. Some of the highlights of the revised ETS include changes to requirement for whether an employee is fully vaccinated or not, changes to what is considered a compliant face covering and face covering requirement, as well as changes to disinfecting/cleanliness requirements. This is just for starters!
While Covid-19 is still considered a hazard in the workplace, employers must stay up to date of ETS requirements to ensure Cal-OSHA compliance. For assistance on updating your Covid-19 policies to reflect the third iteration of ETS requirements or to learn more about the ETS changes, please contact the Employer Lawyers at Chauvel & Glatt.
