California OSHA updates emergency regulations

The California Occupational Safety and Health Standards (CAL-OSHA) Board adopted revised COVID-19 Prevention Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS), effective June 17, 2021.

Please see an FAQ regarding the key revisions linked here >

The revised ETS reflect updated masking and social distancing protocols and are intended to “reflect the availability of vaccinations to limit workplace transmission, to revise requirements in light of updated Centers for Disease Control and California Department of Public Health (CDPH) face covering guidance, and to provide options for employers to make a safe transition from physical distancing and face covering mandates to more normal operations”.
