OSHA Releases the Emergency Temporary Standard

June 14, 2021

OSHA released the emergency temporary standard (ETS) for protecting health care personnel from COVID-19 on the job. Materials, including FAQs, fact sheet, and the ETS itself can be found here.

Talking Points

OSHA heard the voices of nurses and other healthcare personnel who have been advocating since the start of the pandemic for specific safety protections from COVID-19. 

Disappointed it took so long to affirm:

  • Employers’ obligation to provide effective PPE.
  • Nurses and other HCP should not suffer retaliation for following safety standards on the job.
  • Employers should facilitate vaccination from COVID-19 by allowing reasonable paid time off to get the vaccine and manage side effects.

ANA urges OSHA to vigorously enforce the ETS and hold health care employers accountable for these reasonable safety measures.

ANA is reviewing specific provisions of the ETS and will provide more detailed feedback to the Administration.  In the meantime, we will share information about the ETS and enforcement with our members and partners as it becomes available. We encourage nurses to engage in the development and implementation of COVID-19 safety plans.

 

Don't Miss Out: COVID Impact Survey for Healthcare Workers and Responders

April 26,2021

We’re sending you this email and survey link because you probably helped in some way with Colorado’s response to COVID-19. We are trying to learn about how you and your co-workers were impacted by your work during the pandemic. We hope to hear from anyone who supported or participated in the response about what changes need to happen and what services are needed to recover.

This survey asks questions you probably haven’t been asked before. We ask about your experience trying to do what needed to be done during COVID-19, in your organization, with your peer groups, and in your community. We also ask what is working, what might work, what is not working, and why. The survey only takes 15 minutes for most people and you may choose to remain anonymous.

We are independent consultants working on behalf of a Colorado Healthcare Coalition and the Department of Public Health and Environment. We will collect the data and help make recommendations about which services and programs organizations should invest in. However, part of our job is to ensure that no employer or regulatory agency (including the sponsor organizations) will ever know which individuals took the survey or what their responses were.
