OSHA Recordkeeping Compliance for COVID-19 in the Workplace

Given the nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and the difficulty in determining whether transmission of COVID-19 occurred in or outside the workplace, OSHA issued guidance to its Compliance Safety and Health Officers (CSHOs) in order to evaluate employers’ efforts in determining work relatedness of COVID-19 cases. The guidance clarifies employer obligations and provides a framework for employers to follow when facing a COVID-19 case in the workplace.
