Working Together for Safety: COVID-19 and OSHA Recordkeeping

Jun 10, 2020

Working Together for Safety: Episode 10 from ASSP Safety on Vimeo.

In the latest episode of our special “Working Together for Safety” video series, ASSP President Diana Stegall, CSP, CFPS, ARM, explains an update to OSHA's recordkeeping guidance. Two months ago OSHA issued temporary guidance related to the pandemic that relaxed some requirements, but the agency has largely returned to its standard recordkeeping criteria.

That means COVID-19 cases are back to being recordable illnesses, meaning employers must investigate cases of the virus just as they would any other illness to make a work-related determination.
