CAL/OSHA ISSUES ANOTHER UPDATE TO THE JUNE 17, 2021 – COVID-19 PREVENTION PLAN (CPP)
This is an update to our prior OSHA/COVID-19 employer alerts. Cal/Osha has developed a model program to assist employers in creating their own workplace “written” Covid-19 Prevention Plan (CPP). This updated model, published June 29, 2021, reflects the changes made from the June 17, 2021, Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS).
Cal/Osha encourages all employers to work together with their employees to implement a plan that will work best for their workplace. When creating a plan, Employers need to make sure they are compliant with the Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS) and follow CCR, Title 8 sections:
• 3205, COVID-19 Prevention
• 3205.1, Multiple COVID-19 Infection and COVID-19 Outbreaks
• 3205.2, Major COVID-19 Outbreaks
• 3205.3, Prevention in Employer-Provided Housing
• 3205.4, COVID-19 Prevention in Employer-Provided Transportation
This model is intended only to assist employers in implementing a plan but does not guarantee employers’ compliance with the (ETS) requirements.
We know that the protocols are changing constantly, and it can seem overwhelming trying to follow Cal/Osha recommendations. That is why Epps & Coulson, LLP is here to answer all your questions. Feel free to contact Dawn: firstname.lastname@example.org.
