Cal/OSHA ETS Revisions Withdrawn

On June 4, 2021, we sent out a post discussing Cal/OSHA’s approval of the confusing and generally poorly conceived changes to the Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS). The changes have gone over like a lead balloon and on the updated version of the ETS has been withdrawn. Cal/OSHA is continuing to review the CDC guidance and is attempting to craft better regulations which more closely match the federal guidance regarding masks and other COVID-19 prevention measures. As a result of the withdrawal of the updated ETS, the November 2020 ETS remains in effect until future notice. If you modified your COVID-19 Prevention Program, we recommend reverting to the version you previously had in place. We will keep you updated as events continue to unfold. Please reach out if you have any questions.
