Preparing for OSHA’s COVID-19 Vaccination ETS – Employer Checklist
Recently, President Joe Biden signed executive orders requiring federal workers and contractors to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Now, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has been directed to issue an emergency temporary standard (ETS) imposing similar requirements for private employers. According to the White House, the rule will require all businesses with 100 or more employees to ensure workers are either tested for COVID-19 once a week or fully vaccinated.
At this time, the OSHA ETS is still in development. This checklist is a jumping-off point for your organization as you prepare for the upcoming rule. Not all items will apply to all employers in every circumstance.
