Presented by Melissa A. Bailey (Washington, D.C.) Valerie N. Butera (Washington, D.C.) at Ogletree Deakins
Hosted by Ogletree Deakins

This webinar will focus on the workplace safety implications of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), including: voluntary and mandatory respirator use; illness recording/reporting issues; how to respond to employee or Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) complaints; the legal obligation (if any) to comply with guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); and health and safety issues that may arise when employees are working from home. The webinar will also address OSHA’s recently issued “Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19,” which defines risk categories and provides recommendations on controls and how to protect employees from COVID-19.
