OSHA COVID-19 Vaccine & Test Rules ─ What You Can Do to Plan Ahead

Do you have over 100 employees? OSHA’s potential emergency temporary standard (ETS) doesn’t have to loom over your head. Many employers have already established vaccination and testing policies to protect their employees and productivity. 

Protecting your bottom line protects your revenue. When OSHA’s ETS is mandated, this protection will now have to the documented. So, what’s the best plan of action? 

1. OBTAIN ALL CURRENT EMPLOYEE VACCINATION RECORDS

It’s not easy getting the information and documentation you need from employees, just ask your HR department. Since OSHA compliance depends on recordkeeping ─ start collecting now. Determine your number of vaccinated and unvaccinated to ensure you have the proof in hand to back it up. Once you know what the numbers look like, you will have the baseline you need to plan for testing policies.

2. SECURE YOUR TESTING

COVID-19 testing locations across the country are going to experience a surge of patients when OSHA’s ETS goes into effect. Extended wait times and testing shortages can get in the way of your employees providing a negative test on time.
