WORKPLACE SAFETY GUIDANCE
On January 13, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Federal OSHA's COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard for Vaccination and Testing 1910.501 (ETS2), issuing a stay on OSHA's enforcement of ETS2 until the review by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is resolved. As a result, MIOSHA will not proceed with adoption of ETS2 by January 24th and is awaiting information from federal OSHA on next steps. As a reminder, employers are still subject to MIOSHA's General Duty Clause and are expected to make reasonable efforts to protect their employees from pandemic hazards measured against Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.
