The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) Standards Board is scheduled to meet on April 21, 2022 to decide whether to readopt a fourth iteration of its current COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS). The ETS applies to all workers not covered by the Aerosol Transmissible Disease Standard or those working alone/remotely and requires employers to create, implement and maintain an up-to-date COVID-19 Prevention Program.

In October 2021 the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (Notice) for Heat Injury and Illness Prevention in Outdoor and Indoor Work Settings. Publication of the Notice signals the beginning of OSHA’s rulemaking process to consider a heat-specific workplace standard.
