Weekly COVID-19 Oversight & Enforcement Report - April #4

Pressure is increasing on the Biden Administration to release the delayed Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) to protect workers from COVID-related risks. On April 26, Representatives Debbie Dingell (D-MI), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Andy Levin (D-MI) sent a letter to President Biden requesting a detailed explanation as to why OSHA has delayed issuing an ETS despite the President setting a March 15 deadline to do so. The letter highlighted the “dire” COVID-19 outbreak in Michigan and how nurses and other frontline workers have been left reusing PPE and without access to COVID-19 tests. A group of 15 Democratic Senators sent a similar letter to President Biden on April 26 highlighting the hundreds of thousands of COVID-19 cases among essential workers tied to workplace exposure. The Administration’s ETS is currently under OMB review, which is expected to take approximately two weeks.
