To help you and your members better understand the recent guidance issued by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration and in coordination
with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Chamber has created
a summary outlining what employers need to know about protecting their workers as they
maintain or resume operations in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The summary describes OSHA’s comments and addresses three of the main questions:
- How should employers protect their employees?
- Do employers have to record cases of COVID-19 on their injury logs?
