OSHA Issues Updated COVID-19 Guidance

PIM is your source for COVID-19 & EHS issues

Federal OSHA issued updated guidance on August 13, 2021 to protect workers from coronavirus. This updated guidance reflects recent CDC updated recommendations. Included in OSHA’s Guidance is information for manufacturing industries. OSHA continues to emphasize that employers should encourage workers to vaccinate. In addition, employers should instruct workers who are infected with COVID-19, unvaccinated workers with a close contact to someone with COVID-19 and all workers with symptoms to stay home. Also included in this guidance are instructions on  what to do when employees (vaccinated and unvaccinated) are exposed to COVID-19.

If you have questions regarding this or any other COVID-19 or Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) issues, contact Paul Gutkowski (paulg@pimw.org, 612.400.6205) or Cathy Malinowski (cathym@pimw.org, 612.868.6771). Learn More on PIM’s COVID-19 Page.
