Cal/OSHA is forwarding this message to provide employers, workers and other safety and health professionals in California with vital information on what is required to protect workers from exposure to airborne infectious diseases such as the coronavirus.
Guidance documents, educational materials and model programs have been posted on Cal/OSHA’s website to help employer’s comply with the requirements. Cal/OSHA recommends employers review this guidance along with their existing procedures to ensure that their plans are effectively protecting workers.
Our goal at the Department of Industrial Relations and Cal/OSHA is to ensure that you have the information you need to protect your workers during this state of emergency.
