OSHA published a new frequently asked questions resource meant to help protect workers from contracting the coronavirus.
The agency developed the FAQ based on questions it received from the public.
This resource provides guidance to employers and workers on best practices to prevent the spread of infection during the coronavirus pandemic, workers’ rights to express concerns about workplace conditions, testing for the coronavirus, worker training and returning to work.
The new FAQ also addresses topics relating to:
- cleaning and disinfection
- industry-specific guidance for construction
- industry-specific guidance for healthcare
- cloth face coverings
- PPE, and
- restrooms and handwashing facilities.
