The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a new guidance
document to instruct agency staff on enforcement priorities when it comes to handling workplace complaints filed by public and private sector employees regarding the Coronavirus.
“Although this enforcement response plan is directed to OSHA personnel, it provides useful additional guidance to employers on OSHA’s enforcement priorities and considerations, building on OSHA’s previously published guidance to employers for responding to and protecting employees from COVID-19 health and safety concerns in the workplace,” say attorneys Daniel Wolff, Monty Cooper and Leland Frost of the Crowell & Moring law firm.
