Cal/OSHA Board Withdraws Recent Revisions to Emergency Temporary Standards

On June 9, the Cal/OSHA Standards Board voted to withdraw the revisions to their COVID-19 prevention emergency temporary standards, which they had voted to approve on June 3. This leaves the protections that were adopted in November 2020 in effect until new revisions are considered at a future meeting, which could be as early as the Standards Board’s next regular meeting on June 17. More information about the Cal/OSHA emergency standards can be found in the California Department of Industrial Relations news release from June 9.
