Industry Alert: Cal/OSHA Guidance on COVID-19 Infection Prevention for Agriculture

April 6, 2020 – -California employers are required to establish and implement an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) to protect employees from all worksite hazards, including infectious diseases. This guidance contains information, recommendations, and requirements for agricultural employers on how to update their IIPPs to include preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. This guidance does not introduce any new legal obligations, but because COVID-19 is widespread in the community, most California workplaces must consider the disease a workplace hazard.

Cal/OSHA Guidance Includes:

* Employee Training on COVID-19

* Procedures to Help Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 at the Worksite

* Procedures to Increase Physical Distancing

* Good Sanitation Practices

* Resources for Agricultural Employers
