Webinar Materials

On March 10, 2020, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued guidance for employers to prevent occupational exposures to the coronavirus. OSHA reminds employers that while no specific standard governs occupational exposure to the coronavirus, the OSHA’s General Duty Clause, 29 U.S.C. § 654 (a)(1), requires employers to provide their employees with a workplace free from recognized hazards likely to cause death or serious physical harm. The response of higher ed institutions has been swift and evolving, and while many continue to explore the impact of extended breaks, expanded online learning, and work-from-home directives for most individuals, it is still important to keep individuals who remain on campus safe.

In this webinar, our presenters will share information about:

  • OSHA legal framework (Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act)
  • Obligations stemming from exposure situations
  • Cleaning and decontamination procedures and recommendations
  • Quarantines
  • How HR is assisting and will continue to assist with keeping campuses safe

Presenters will reserve time for questions from attendees. Not sure if you can attend? Register now, and you’ll be notified via email when the recording is available.
