Groups Ask OSHA For Answers About New Vaccine Mandate
October 4, 2021
Last week, EMA joined NACS, NATSO and SIGMA in a letter to OSHA Acting Assistant Secretary Jim Frederick concerning questions in response to President Biden’s executive order (EO) directing businesses with more than 100 employees to either require workers to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or produce a negative COVID-19 test weekly.
The Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) may complicate already fragile labor markets and create challenges for many businesses that are currently struggling to remain open.
The groups urged OSHA to address the specific questions we raised in the ETS or forthcoming guidance, and to provide clear and complete guidance to employers, so they know what OSHA expects.
