Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well.

NECA Summarizes the OSHA Revised Enforcement Guidance for Recording Cases of Coronavirus Disease 2019

May 20, 2020

OSHA certifies COVID-19 is a recordable illness in all industries if the standard criteria are present1, but the agency now formally acknowledges “in many instances it remains difficult to determine whether a COVID-19 illness is work-related, especially when an employee has experienced potential exposure both in and out of the workplace.”

In order to comply with the OSHA recordkeeping and recordation obligations related to COVID-19, employers should consult this revised interim guidance for direction on how to conduct a reasonable and good faith investigation to assess whether or not a COVID-19 illness is recordable.

NECA is working on specific guidance on how to best implement the newly revised directive.
