OSHA Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19

Under the US Department of Labor, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has prepared a document titled "Guidelines on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19" .

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) developed this COVID-19 planning guidance based on traditional infection prevention and industrial hygiene practices. It focuses on the need for employers to implement engineering, administrative, and work practice controls and personal protective equipment (PPE), as well as considerations for doing so.

This guidance is advisory in nature and informational in content. It is not a standard or a regulation, and it neither creates new legal obligations nor alters existing obligations created by OSHA standards or the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act)
