OSHA Website Addresses Coronavirus Protection

The U.S. Department of Labor has produced this webpage to provide information to employers regarding the evolving coronavirus outbreak first identified in China.

The agency notes that there is no evidence of widespread transmission of the virus in the U.S. at this time. Still, it’s worthwhile for employers to review the site, including its information on hazard recognition, control and prevention, and OSHA standards as they apply to the virus. 2/6/2020
