Numerous states with OSHA-approved plans, including California, Oregon, Michigan, Washington, and Virginia, have begun to develop or have already adopted emergency temporary standards related to Covid-19. Among other requirements, these emergency standards generally require employers to develop policies for reporting COVID-19, prohibit infected employees from reporting to work, establish a system for receiving test reports, ensure social distancing, and use of personal protective equipment.

Attendees will learn:

  • The various requirements of state emergency standards, including obligations for higher risk industries;
  • Strategies for staffing companies to ensure compliance with the emergency standards while minimizing disruption to their operations.
