The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) today announced an interim enforcement response plan for the coronavirus pandemic, effective immediately. The response plan provides instructions and guidance to OSHA Area Offices and compliance safety and health officers (CSHOs) for handling coronavirus-related complaints, referrals, and severe illness reports. This follows OSHA’s recent announcement recognizing COVID-19 as a “recordable illness” after receiving more than 2,000 complaints related to the coronavirus by early April. In fact, OSHA received so many complaints that it stopped sending letters requiring a response from employers, instead opting to send notification letters to the employers addressing COVID-19 workplace safety.
