2021 workplace goals for COVID-19 have shifted as it becomes more impactful for Employers when it comes to testing, vaccination, and litigation. In 2020, OSHA issued guidance for Employers to open their workplaces safely. However, merely the guidance wasn't enough to enforce the necessary measures, and many companies had no consequence when they did not comply with this guidance. These inconsistencies put employers and employees at risk for contracting COVID-19.
2021 has changed the focus to have OSHA be the enforcement on the health and safety factors to have employees rejoin their workplaces safely and provide the necessary direction for them. The new administration has increased their compliance efforts to ensure that OSHA is overseeing the violations of regulations in the workplace and increased fines and penalties.
Join Clatid this May to review the necessary steps taken under OSHA to offer a COVID-19-free work environment, and what non-compliance with it may cost you.
