Permanent Health and Safety Standard

The pandemic brought on by the Covid-19 virus has revealed how important employer-provided health and safety measures are to their employees.  Because Covid-19 promises to be with us for the indefinite future and because a widely available vaccine remains months away and its efficacy over the long-term is unproven, I think that enforceable permanent standards of health and safety in the workplace should be passed by the state legislature.
