ABSTRACT

Frequently Asked Questions: Responding to COVID-19 in the Workplace   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "In geographic areas where community spread of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] has significantly decreased, OSHA [Occupational Safety and Health Administration] will return to the inspection planning policy that OSHA relied on prior to the start of the COVID-19 health crises, as outlined in the OSHA Field Operations Manual (FOM), CPL 02-00-164, Chapter 2, when prioritizing reported events for inspections, except that: (1) OSHA will continue to prioritize COVID-19 cases; (2) OSHA will utilize non-formal phone/fax investigations or rapid response investigations in circumstances where OSHA has historically performed such inspections (e.g., to address formal complaints) when necessary to assure effective and efficient use of resources to address COVID-19-related events; and (3) In all instances, the Area Director (AD) will ensure that CSHOs [Certified Safety and Health Official] utilize the appropriate precautions and personal protective equipment (PPE) when performing inspections related to COVID-19."
