  • New Guidance (again) from CALOSHA

    The Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (OSHSB) met on December 16, 2021, to consider a second readoption of its COVID-19 Workplace Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS). After public comment and some discussion, the OSHSB — the standards-setting agency within the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) — did, indeed, vote to readopt the ETS with the proposed amendments. The changes take effect January 14, 2022 and will remain in place until April 14, 2022.

    The revised ETS maintains the general ETS framework we’ve been working under since November 2020, which requires employers to create and implement a written COVID-19 Prevention Program addressing COVID-19-related issues in the workplace. The revised ETS makes notable changes, however, to several key areas, including testing, face coverings, vaccination, exclusion of employees after exposure and certain definitions. In general, the changes roll back some flexibility in the current ETS by, among other things, eliminating many of the distinctions between vaccinated and unvaccinated workers adopted in the June 2021 revisions.

    This link below highlights some of the changes coming in the revised ETS, but employers should review the ETS and related guidance in detail and consult with legal counsel about making changes to their COVID-19 Prevention Programs.

    Who Rides SMART?

    A monthly series celebrating North Bay residents who enjoy taking the SMART train for a stress-free ride to work

    Meet Raymond who a Special Education Instructional Assistant for Coleman Elementary School. He is hugely popular amongst the students, and impacts both staff and students by ensuring everyone is supported and safe.  Many of the staff at Coleman call him a “role model” and have nothing but outstanding things to say about the irreplaceable contributions he makes to the school.  Raymond rides SMART every weekday from his home in Petaluma to the Downtown San Rafael Station. He enjoys the daily conversations with his commuter friends - whom all enjoy the convenience of not having to drive in their cars to work. When asked why he rides the train, he says “Riding SMART is a total convenient joy! So comfortable and relaxing and always reliable and on time. I’ve made a lot of friends on the train! My train rides in the mornings have Scott, and Vince on board and this is always a great way to start the day. I totally enjoy SMART!”

    He’s just one of many WHO RIDE SMART ……to get to work.
