The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on Tuesday issued two documents to provide updated information to OSHA investigators on workplace enforcement guidelines, which were first released last month.

The first, called the Updated Interim Enforcement Response Plan for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), provides updated instructions and guidance to OSHA Area Offices and compliance safety and health officers (CSHOs) for handing complaints associated with COVID-19 and severe illness exposure.

The second, called Revised Enforcement Guidance for Recording Cases of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), lays out requirements for recording cases of COVID-19.

In this document, OSHA did not change the criteria for recording a case of COVID-19 from its previous guidance. However, it did add new parameters on how an employer can determine if COVID-19 was contracted at a workplace.
