The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published an emergency temporary standard (ETS) in the Federal Register on June 21, 2021 to protect healthcare and healthcare support service workers from occupational exposure to COVID-19 in settings where people with COVID-19 are reasonably expected to be present. (See NAHC Report for additional information.)
The ETS applies to all health care settings and outlines requirements for employers to ensure employees have a safe working environment. Covered entities must comply with the standards within 14 days (30 days for some) of the publication in the Federal Register.
This presentation reviewed all the standards and their application to the home care setting.
