Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19 

Actions to take to mitigate employee exposure

 

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) developed a COVID-19 planning guidance based on traditional infection prevention and industrial hygiene practices. It focuses on the need for employers to implement engineering, administrative, and work practice controls and personal protective equipment (PPE), as well as considerations for doing so. This guidance is intended for planning purposes. Employers and workers should use it to help identify risk levels in workplace settings and to determine any appropriate control measures to implement.
