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.
