This is the fourth in our series of insights into OSHA’s new guidance, published on January 29, 2021. On Friday, we discussed what to do when your employee is COVID-19 positive or has been exposed.

Here’s the fourth thing to know: Do you need to do anything additional for your older or higher-risk employees?

Employees who are older or have an underlying medical condition which puts them at a higher risk for severe illness due to COVID-19 might be entitled to reasonable accommodations at work to ensure they’re able to perform their job as safely as possible.

Remember to not single out older or disabled employees; but rather, work with them, when requested or when you have reason to know of their need, to engage in a productive interactive process.

We’re breaking down the recent OSHA guidance in this series. Stay tuned for another OSHA tip tomorrow!
