On-Demand Webinar: OSHA’s COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard — Implications and Next Steps for Healthcare Providers

On June 21, 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace and addressing the increased risk to employees in settings where suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients are treated. The 916-page document includes requirements for protective practices and policies related to physical space, equipment, and facilities. The ETS will remain in place for the next six months.

During a webinar on August 3, 2021, PYA Principal Jeff Bushong and Realty Trust Group Senior Vice President Hank Carr provided a high-level overview of the OSHA ETS — including immediate next steps to help guide compliance in operations and facilities.
