On November 19, 2020, the California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board unanimously adopted temporary emergency standards on COVID-19 prevention in the workplace.  For much of the pandemic, California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health Cal/OSHA has advised employers to follow its general and industry-specific guidance on various measures to minimize the risk of employee exposure to COVID-19.


The new emergency standards will be binding and enforceable against nearly all California employers AND became effective on November 30, 2020.


We recommend that employers act quickly to ensure they comply with the new standards and the requirement to prepare and implement a Written COVID-19 Prevention Program (WCPP).


Aspen Risk Management Group, a TRISTAR Company, has provided this checklist to help guide your development and implementation of the new regulation. We have also provided a sample WCPP template.


In this time of COVID-19, with company shutdowns and reduced revenue for so many of our clients and partners, we are providing these tools free of charge to help you weather this storm. You can use both the checklist and the guide to develop your own WCPP plan. Even if your business is not in California, these documents can help you develop a COVID-19 response plan for your business. This sample plan is not intended to be all-encompassing nor address every detail of your business response to COVID-19.  Therefore, we highly recommend that you engage a labor law attorney firm to review your final plan due to the regulations' complexity. It is our sincere privilege to be a part of your business recovery at this challenging time.
