OSHA Issues New Standards for Health Care Settings

June 17, 2021

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) released Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS) to address exposure to COVID-19 to workers in health care settings. Providers had to be in compliance with most of the ETS by July 6, 2021. AHCA/NCAL requested flexibility and recognition of good faith efforts given the complexity of the standards with little time to implement.
