What Will OSHA Do Next, and What Does That Mean for Employers?

As you may have heard, OSHA officially withdrew the vaccination and testing emergency temporary standard (“ETS”), effective January 26, 2022. While the Supreme Court decision foreshadowed this outcome, many businesses still adopted protocols based upon those in the ETS. While OSHA indicates it is “prioritizing its resources to focus on finalizing a permanent COVID-19 Healthcare Standard,” others expect that OSHA will turn to enforcement activities related to its more traditional workplace safety authority and role.
