Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards – What Employers Need to Know

California approved emergency temporary Cal/OSHA standards on COVID-19 infection prevention on
November 30, 2020. These new temporary standards apply to most workers in California not covered by
Cal/OSHA’s Aerosol Transmissible Diseases standard.

With some exceptions, all employers and places of employment are required to establish and implement an effective written COVID-19 Prevention Program (CPP) pursuant to an Emergency Temporary Standard in place for COVID-19 (California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 8, section 3205(c)).

Cal/OSHA has developed this model program to assist employers with creating their own unique CPP tailored to their workplace. Here is information on the regulation and a sample program for your use:

Also a link to a FAQ page about the regulation HERE

This is the link to the COVID-19 resources from Cal-OSHA. There are 5 good sections here, there is guidance by industry, FAQ’s page, training and educational materials, webinars and an online training section. All of the sections have good resources that have been helpful to me and others. I think you will find them useful as well.

Stay safe and healthy out there…
