Health & Safety Worker Protection for COVID-19
Virginia’s Occupational Safety & Health regulation sets legal mandate for workplaces

On July 15, 2020, the Virginia Occupational Safety and Health program (VOSH) initiated enforcement of an Emergency Temporary Standard for COVID-19. Virginia is the first state to adopt a specific standard intended to protect workers and “to control, prevent, and mitigate the spread of [COVID-19]” in the workplace.

The majority of workplace tasks fit into the “medium exposure risk level”

  • Medium exposure risks jobs are those that “require more than minimal occupational contact” with others who may have COVID-19, but who are not known or suspected of having COVID-19.
  • This includes those who provide services in schools, retail spaces, office spaces, restaurants and bars; manufacturing settings; construction; meat processing; and commercial transportation.

What is required of employers to comply?:

  • Develop and implement a written Infectious Disease Preparedness and Response Plan
  • Provide employee training based on the Plan

Plan Components

Infectious Disease & Response Plans include:

  • Customized policies and procedures tailored to each client to control the spread of COVID-19
  • Contingency plans in the event of an infectious disease (COVID-19) outbreak
  • Comprehensive infectious disease prevention and control measures
  • Identification and isolation of sick and/or exposed employees
  • Employee training and education requirements
  • Procedures for minimizing exposure from outside of the workplace
  • Recommended signage and documentation
