The California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board is poised to consider, and will likely approve, an emergency temporary standard on COVID-19 prevention at its meeting on Thursday November 19th.

Unfortunately, the tight timelines and process that the Standards Board decided to follow as part of the emergency rulemaking have not allowed for a transparent process whereby stakeholders can proactively engage on draft language.
