President Joe Biden announced on September 9 that OSHA is developing an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) on Covid-19. The ETS will require employers with at least 100 workers to either get their entire staff fully vaccinated or show a negative COVID test every week. Employers will also be required to give their workers paid time off to get vaccinated. President Biden also signed executive orders requiring federal employees and contractors to get vaccinated. All healthcare employees will also have to get vaccinated.
All workers in the United States must abide by the occupational safety and health regulations set forth by Federal OSHA. OSHA 30 Construction is an online course that gives essential awareness and enough knowledge about important site safety themes and potential site dangers that workers are typically ignorant of. It is designed for workers in supervisory or managerial roles. Introduction to OSHA, OSHA Focus Four Hazards, Personal Protective Equipment, Materials Handling, Usage and Disposal, Ergonomics, and Concrete and Masonry Construction are just a few examples of the safety subjects covered. After finishing this online training, workers will receive the OSHA 30 card on behalf of the U.S. Department of Labor. This course improves workers’ expertise and skills for handling challenging situations and will also help upgrade their careers in the construction industry.
