Topic Pandemic Planning for the OSH Professional
In the Spring of 2020, The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) anticipated a greater need for occupational safety and health technical assistance to combat COVID-19 as workplaces start to resume on-site operations. NIOSH anticipates that the need for technical assistance will affect the entire United States, last for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, and exceed current NIOSH capacity. OSH professionals need assistance on how best to decrease the spread of COVID-19 and lower the impact on workplaces. This brief will discuss the current plans and resources that will be available to OSH professionals, specifically pandemic/infectious disease workplace plans.
