OSHA Quicktakes: OSHA Schedules Stakeholder Meetings To Discuss Occupational Exposure To Infectious Diseases

Filed under: News

OSHA will hold two informal stakeholder meetings July 29 in Washington, D.C., to solicit comments on exposure to infectious diseases in the workplace. OSHA will use information gathered during these meetings to explore the possible development of a proposed rule to protect workers from occupational exposure to infectious agents in healthcare settings where direct patient care is provided and other settings where workers perform tasks with occupational exposure. Based on responses to OSHA’s May 2010 Request for Information on Infectious Diseases and an ongoing review of literature on this subject, OSHA is considering development of a proposed program standard to control worker exposures to infectious agents. The two meetings will be held July 29 from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at DOL headquarters in Washington, D.C.
