Northstate SHRM wants you to be prepared.
Do you have your written COVID-19 Prevention Plan completed and implemented? Have you identified all of your hazards? Do you conduct regular inspections? Are your employees trained? Do you have your Employee Notices ready for any workplace exposures?
If you answered NO to any of these, you need to sign up for this program and find out how to comply to the Cal/OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard that was adopted and effective immediately on November 30, 2020. You will learn from legal experts in this field who also have experience working for Cal/OSHA. Stop scrambling to understand how to comply and come find out the details from some experts.
In this program, our speakers will cover what California employers need to know to comply with the new rule, including:
- Understanding the rules and requirements and how they apply to your business;
- Developing an effective written COVID-19 prevention plan;
- Investigating, responding to, and notifying employees of COVID-19 cases in the workplace;
- Employer obligations to screen employees, ensure proper sanitation and social distancing, and provide face coverings and PPE;
- Determining whether an employee who tests positive or is quarantined is entitled to “exclusion pay”;
- Steps which must be taken when an outbreak occurs in your workplace; and
- The risk of Cal/OSHA enforcement and penalties for non-compliance
