Workplace safety enforcement will be more aggressive and robust under an OSHA governed by the Biden administration. Employers should take actions now to ensure that their safety and health programs are compliant with rules that are in place and will govern American workplaces.
Every workplace in the U.S. must abide by guidelines set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the governing agency responsible for promoting workplace safety. Healthcare workers have one of the the highest rates of work-related injuries and illnesses. Even before the pandemic, healthcare workers faced a wide range of hazards on the job, including exposure to blood borne pathogens, chemicals, hazardous drugs, and muscular-skeletal disorders.
