WASHINGTON, DC – Following President Donald J. Trump’s memorandum on the availability of respirators during the COVID-19 outbreak, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued new temporary guidance regarding the enforcement of OSHA’s Respiratory Protection standard. This guidance is aimed at ensuring healthcare workers have full access to needed N95 respiratory protection in light of anticipated shortages.
“The safety and health of Americans are top priorities for the President. That’s why the Administration is taking this action to protect America’s healthcare workers,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia. “Today’s guidance ensures that healthcare workers have the resources they need to stay safe during the COVID-19 outbreak.”
If you have difficulty getting ASSP or chapter emails delivered to your inbox, it’s likely they are being blocked by your ISP or company’s spam filter. Why might a spam filter do this? It could be due to an aggressive stance against commercial messages or the filter may be programmed to not allow the same message to be sent to many different recipients at the same time.In these situations, the first step is to whitelist ASSP on your desktop computer or through your company’s IT department.
