Update: Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board

On June 17, 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (Standards Board) voted to update the COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS), 8 CCR §§ 3205-3205.4. 

Executive Order N-09-21 permitted the revised ETS to take effect the same day. Cal/OSHA has developed and posted FAQs that highlight the changes between the original November 30, 2020 ETS and the revised ETS, including updates on compliance and enforcement, and updated the main set of COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards FAQs that reflect the requirements of the June 17, 2021 ETS.
