OSHA Has Launched a COVID-19 National Emphasis Plan

On March 12, 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) launched a national emphasis program (NEP) for COVID-19. OSHA establishes NEPs when it identifies a need to focus its resources to address particular hazards and high-hazard industries.

This NEP will remain in effect for one year or until OSHA amends or cancels the program.

COVID-19 NEP
Prior OSHA guidance primarily addressed mitigating and limiting the spread of COVID-19. This NEP prioritizes the use of OSHA resources to eliminate and control workplace exposure to COVID-19.

OSHA’s interim enforcement response provides supplemental information to the NEP, including:
• Implementing the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) COVID-19 Workplace Safety Plan;
• Prioritizing COVID-19-related inspections involving death or multiple hospitalizations; and
• Performing on-site (rather than remote) inspections when practical and safe for OSHA compliance officers.

This Compliance Bulletin presents an overview of OSHA’s updated strategy.

Employee benefits liability (EBL) is insurance that covers businesses from errors and omissions that occur when employee benefit plans are administered. These errors and omissions may include failing to enroll, maintain or terminate employees in a plan, and failing to correctly describe benefit plans and eligibility rules to employees. EBL insurance covers a wide range of plans, including health, dental and life insurance, profit-sharing plans, workers’ compensation and employee stock plans. EBL insurance is typically sold as a standalone policy.
