OSHA's Emergency Temporary Standard on the Vaccine Mandate Update

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit re-instated the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration's (OSHA) COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS). The ETS requires employers with 100 or more employees to get their employees vaccinated or require unvaccinated employees to produce a negative test on at least a weekly basis.
In addition to requirements for vaccination or negative weekly tests for the unvaccinated, the ETS also requires:

  • Companies to pay employees for the time it takes to get vaccinated
  • Employers must ensure all unvaccinated employees are masked
  • Employers are subject to requirements for reporting and record keeping
  • Specific compliance dates
Kevin Schwalb, TRSA Vice President, Government Relations will lead this interactive webinar by explaining and clarifying the regulation and steps for compliance and how it impacts the linen, uniform and facility services industry.
