Department of Labor issues emergency standard to protect workers from pandemic

Nov 4, 2021

Department of Labor issues emergency standard to protect workers from pandemic The temporary standard increases protections for 84 million private-sector workers. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has announced a new emergency temporary standard (ETS) to protect workers from the spread of coronavirus on the job. According to a news release from OSHA , this emergency temporary standard requires covered employers to develop, implement and enforce a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy. Employers can also adopt policies requiring employees to either be vaccinated or undergo regular COVID-19 testing and wear a face covering at work. OSHA says the coronavirus has led to the deaths of 750,000 people in the U.S. Many of the people killed and infected by this virus were workers whose primary exposures occurred at their jobs. The administration estimates that this rule will save thousands of lives and prevent more than 250,000 hospitalizations due to workplace exposure to COVID-19 throughout the ETS. “COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on workers, and we continue to see dangerous levels of cases,” says U.S. Labor Secretary Marty Walsh. “We must take action to implement this ETS to contain the virus and protect people in the workplace against the grave danger of COVID-19.” The ETS covers employers with 100 or more employees companywide and provides options for compliance. The ETS also requires employers to provide paid time to workers to get vaccinated and allows for paid leave to recover from any side effects. The ETS also requires employers to do the following: Determine the vaccination status of each employee, obtain acceptable proof of vaccination status from vaccinated employees and maintain records and a roster of each employee’s vaccination status. Require employees to provide prompt notice when they test positive for COVID-19 or receive a COVID-19 diagnosis. Employers must then remove the employee from the workplace, regardless of vaccination status; employers must not allow them to return to work until they meet the required criteria. Ensure each worker who is not fully vaccinated is tested for COVID-19 weekly if the worker comes to work at least once a week. Or ensure the worker is tested within 7 days before returning to work. Ensure that each employee, who has not been fully vaccinated, wears a face covering when indoors or when occupying a vehicle with another person for work purposes. The ETS does not require employers to pay for testing. However, employers may be required to pay for testing to comply with other laws, regulations, collective bargaining agreements or other collectively negotiated agreements. Employers are also not required to pay for face coverings. “While vaccination remains the most effective and efficient defense against COVID-19, this emergency temporary standard will protect all workers, including those who remain unvaccinated, by requiring regular testing and the use of face coverings by unvaccinated workers to prevent the spread of the virus,” says Jim Frederick, the deputy assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health at OSHA. “As part of OSHA’s mission to protect the safety and health of workers, this rule will provide a roadmap to help businesses keep their workers safe.” OSHA is offering compliance assistance to help businesses implement the standard, including a webinar, frequently asked questions and other compliance materials. The ETS will cover two-thirds of the private-sector workforce. In the 26 states and two territories with OSHA State Plans, the ETS also covers public-sector workers employed by state and local governments, including educators and school staff. OSHA says the ETS is effective immediately upon its publication in the Federal Register. Employers must comply with most requirements within 30 days of publication and with testing requirements within 60 days of publication. OSHA says it's seeking comment on all aspects of this ETS and whether the agency should adopt it as a final standard. The administration will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 infections and deaths as the number of vaccinated people in workplaces and the general public increases and the pandemic evolves. Finland-based Metso Outotec has announced it will invest in extending its current manufacturing capacity of mobile track-mounted crushing and screening equipment in Alwar, India. The company says its production value in India is planned for 30 percent growth from the current level and global track-mounted mobile machine capacity will be raised by 15 percent. Construction of the new factory facilities is planned to start in early 2022 and be completed by the end of next year. The increased capacity in India will be used for the manufacturing of McCloskey  mobile and Lokotrack equipment , employing approximately 200 additional people, says the firm. After the extension is completed, the Alwar factory will be one of the biggest manufacturing sites of Metso Outotec, employing approximately 800 people. “This is another step in developing our domestic and export business in India,” says Markku Simula, president of the Aggregates business area of Metso Outotec. “At the same time, we are also investing significantly in engineering and R&D resources in Alwar and making it one of our global engineering hubs.” Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas (HCEA) Inc., Norcross, Georgia, has announced the appointment of Stan Park as president of the company. “For more than 20 years, I've been fortunate enough to grow with Hyundai,” Park says, adding that he is “excited to have the opportunity to lead the company to the next level.” According to a news release from Hyundai , Park is a 27-year veteran of Hyundai and previously held field and executive-level leadership roles at the company. Most recently, he served as the vice president of marketing and dealer development. Mike Ross, vice president of sales, says Park’s experience and leadership abilities will be essential in driving the success of Hyundai’s brand in North America going forward. “Stan is a pillar of HCEA in North America and is well-known throughout the organization domestically and abroad,” he says. Curbtender Sweepers LLC , Cedar Falls, Iowa, has announced its purchase of the Brush Hawg line of knuckle boom grapple loaders from Miami-based Iron Container . The product line specializes in collection and disposal of bulk waste, brush, debris and tree limbs. The Brush Hawg business now joins the growing portfolio of debris collection vehicles at Curbtender Sweepers. The Curbtender family of companies manufacture refuse trucks, leaf and debris vacuum trucks, mechanical street sweepers and regenerative air sweepers at its factories in Gothenburg, Nebraska, and Cedar Falls. Brush Hawg limb and brush loaders have been manufactured for more than 30 years in Easley, South Carolina. More recently, Brush Hawg’s patented All Weather Cab (AWC) has introduced a new level of operator safety and comfort to the marketplace, Curbtender says. “We are very excited to offer this new product to our dealers and customers throughout the U.S. and Canada,” Curbtender CEO Kevin Watje says. “By joining the Curbtender family, Brush Hawg will be able to expand its sales and service locations, as well as increase its manufacturing capabilities.” Brown Gibbons Lang & Co.
