The Occupational Safety and Health Administration March 12 issued a National Emphasis Program related to COVID-19 enforcement that expands upon OSHA’s current enforcement efforts by targeting specific high-hazard industries or activities where the risk of workers contracting COVID-19 is substantial.

The agency also updated its Interim Enforcement Response Plan for COVID-19 to conform to the priorities in the National Emphasis Program.
