OSHA Issues Revised COVID-19 Recordkeeping Requirement

OSHA recently announced it will not enforce recordkeeping requirements for COVID-19 in most industries where there is ongoing community transmission. As reported, this announcement reverses previous guidance provided by the agency in March when the agency said COVID-19 transmission in the workplace, unlike the flu or common cold, would be considered a recordable injury.

OMA Connections Partner Frantz Ward has published guidance following the announcement, as has Fisher Phillips. 4/13/2020
