COVID-19 Resources

With the unprecedented steps taken with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeing mandates and guidelines change frequently. Here are some reference sites to help navigate important information for your organization and employee safety. We will be posting new information as it becomes available to us.

NEW - Cal/OSHA Adopts New Emergency COVID-19 Standard

The Department of Industrial Relations' (DIR) Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board unanimously adopted emergency temporary standards to protect workers from hazards related to COVID-19. The Office of Administrative Law has reviewed and approved the emergency standards. The emergency standards will be in effect for 180 days, but can be extended. It is anticipated that Cal/OSHA will use this time to create permanent regulations on this topic. We recommend that you consult with employment counsel to make sure that your policies and practices are in compliance with the new regulations.
