Cal/OSHA Guidance on COVID-19 Infection Prevention for Agriculture Now Available in Spanish

On Tuesday, Cal/OSHA issued guidance for agricultural employers on how to update their Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) to include preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. This guidance is now available in Spanish.

The COVID-19 Infection Prevention to Agricultural Employers and Employees guidance does not introduce any new legal obligations, but because COVID-19 is widespread in the community, most California workplaces must consider the disease a workplace hazard.

The guidance contains information, recommendations, and requirements for agricultural employers on:

  • Employee training on COVID-19
  • Procedures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 at the worksite
  • Procedures to increase physical distancing
  • Good sanitation practices
