OSHA Withdraws Most of Temporary COVID-19 Health Care Safety Rule

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is withdrawing all but the record-keeping requirements under a COVID-19 emergency temporary standard (ETS) that applied only to health care workers.

The health care ETS, which was issued in June, focused on settings where coronavirus patients are treated, including hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living facilities. The directive required covered employers to implement certain COVID-19-related safety measures and provide workers with paid time off to get vaccinated.
