OSHA Launches National Emphasis Program for COVID-19

On March 12, 2021, OSHA announced a National Emphasis Program (NEP) titled National Emphasis Program – Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

The purpose, as OSHA’s NEP explains, is “to ensure that employees in high hazard industries or work tasks are protected from the hazard of contracting SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2), the cause of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). ”

We’ll provide more details for you about this new OSHA/COVID National Emphasis Program below. Remember this comes pretty soon after the January 29, 2021 COVID guidance from OSHA.

Also keep min mind that we’ve created a 16-element COVID/Return to Work checklist for you based on the OSHA guidance and that our parent company Vector Solutions is offering complementary online COVID safety and health training courses for you to use.
