OSHA Announces Enforcement, Effort for Focused Inspections in Senior Care Facilities
OSHA has formalized what they have been doing for a while now, paying special attention to healthcare/long term care and COVID. Your best bet is to keep the Emergency Temporary Standard program in place even though the Standard has expired. Inspections will be focused, but like any inspection, if they see unrelated violations they can expand it to other areas. To that end, make sure your Bloodborne programs are up to date, as well as PPE and especially Respiratory Protection Programs.
As always, if you have any questions or need additional assistance, please let me know. I also suggest contacting me if OSHA shows up for any reason. I can't make them go away, but I can often help with the process.
