Cal/OSHA’s COVID-19 Prevention Non-Emergency Regulation Is Now in Effect After OAL Approval February 3, 2023
February 3, 2023
On December 15, 2022, the California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board adopted the COVID-19 Prevention Non-Emergency Regulation to replace the Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS), which were set to end on December 31, 2022.
On February 3, 2023, the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) approved the new COVID-19 prevention regulations, which means that these new regulations are in effect as of February 3, 2023. This approval had been expected for weeks and has finally been confirmed.
Although the non-emergency regulation shares many similarities with the ETS, there are notable differences. California employers may want to review the new regulations to ensure they are in compliance.
