As COVID-19 has spread across the United States, more and more employers have wondered what they should expect next. Without a doubt, it can be difficult to keep up with a global health situation that continues changing.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration, there are some things that employers should know when it comes to COVID vaccination testing.
1. Certain Industries Face State-By-State Requirements
While OSHA oversees several aspects of COVID testing requirements that impact the majority of industries in the U.S. labor force, there are certain industries that face different requirements on a state-by-state basis.
2. Employers Should Stay Current With OSHA Updates
To stay up-to-date with the most recent requirements, employers should stay current with the ongoing OSHA updates. The best place to find these notifications is through the agency’s website.
3. Employers Should Also Stay Current With Local Updates
In addition to OSHA requirements, your local health department might also have its own protocols in place that go a step further than those under OSHA. As such, local updates are also important.
At the end of the day, staying informed of local, state and federal regulations and requirements will help you keep your employees as safe as possible in your business.
