Cal/OSHA will create emergency COVID workplace safety rules

After months of discussion, California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health will move forward with emergency statewide standards to address what worker advocates have been calling “an occupational health emergency.”

A seven-member board appointed by Gov. Gavin Newsom voted unanimously Thursday to begin creating standards that would require employers to take stricter precautions against COVID-19.

“It’s really impossible for anyone to claim this is not an emergency and not a significant problem we need to address,” board member Laura Stock, an occupational health expert, said in urging her colleagues to vote yes.

The board oversees standards enforced by the agency, better known as Cal/OSHA.
