On Aug. 2, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Alliance program issued an updated guide containing COVID-19 guidance and resources for employers from a variety of agencies including the DOL, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Additionally, the guide includes input from industry groups on best practices for COVID-19 safety in the workplace.
The latest updates to the Alliance program guide include the CDC’s list of COVID-19 guidance documents, a COVID-19 Vaccines Toolkit for Workers, Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People and more.
Additionally, OSHA has included a list of general COVID-19 resources grouped by agency, including those on the OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard and updated enforcement policies, and sections on respiratory protection, vaccines and additional industry-specific COVID-19 resources grouped by industry, such as the construction sector. As with previous versions, it is intended as a resource and is not comprehensive.
The Alliance COVID-19 resource guide can be accessed here.
