  • MNOSHA rulemaking:  MNOSHA adopts occupational exposure to COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard
  • COVID-19 Preparedness Plan:  A written COVID-19 Preparedness Plan is no longer mandated by executive order. However, under federal and Minnesota OSHA laws, employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthy workplace free from recognized hazards likely to cause death or serious physical harm. To meet these obligations under OSHA laws, employers should continue to implement COVID-19 prevention programs in the workplace. The most effective programs contain a number of key elements, including conducting a hazard assessment, identifying and implementing measures that limit the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace and adopting measures that ensure that workers who are infected or potentially infected are separated and sent home from the workplace. Prevention programs should take into consideration mandatory safety and health protocols established by OSHA standards, as well as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and OSHA recommendations that reflect developments in science and best practices.
