permanent workplace health and safety standard
Virginia needs a strong permanent standard.
- The proposed standard provides strong protections for workers and clear guidance for employers.
- This standard will save lives, prevent COVID-19 spread and help get Virginia’s economy moving again.
This standard should be around for much more than 6 months. People and companies need support in understanding what they need to do to keep a healthy work environment. Having the standard will keep employers in the know. Workers will return to work and feel comfortable to do so.
