Federal OSHA's COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard for Healthcare 1910.502 (ETS1)
Technically, federal OSHA has not rescinded their COVID-19 healthcare rules (29 CFR 1910.502) and MIOSHA has not rescinded Part 505, Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Healthcare. However, the only rules that federal OSHA and MIOSHA are enforcing currently under these standards for healthcare employers include that they must maintain and make available a COVID-19 log (paragraphs 502(q)(2)(ii) and (q)(3)(ii)-(iv)) and must report all COVID-19-related fatalities and hospitalizations (paragraph 502(r)).
Federal OSHA's COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard for Vaccination and Testing 1910.501 (ETS2)
On January 26, 2022, federal OSHA withdrew its COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard for Vaccination and Testing 1910.501 (ETS2). As a result, MIOSHA has not proceeded with the adoption of ETS2.
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.
