In this guidance, OSHA gives advice to employers and workers on how to make the workplace safer during COVID-19. The guidance states how dangerous COVID-19 is and how easily it is passed from one person to the next. (en español)

National Agenda for Worker Safety and Health

After nearly a year of COVID, workers around the country are sick, dying and broke. Together, we can turn this around: save lives, get healthy, and get back to work in an environment with greater safety precautions and lower risk. The National Agenda for Worker Safety and Health, released on Wednesday, February 3, 2021, was developed by workers, unions, safety advocates and worker organizations. It brings together ideas, based on real experience in our workplaces, to confront the COVID-19 pandemic and other hazards in our workplaces. (en español) See the toolkit for the agenda here.

Essential Workers Town Hall
May 20, 2020

To lift up the voices of essential workers, National COSH hosted a bilingual virtual Essential Workers Town Hall on May 20th with two very special guest speakers: Academy Award-winning actress and long-time activist Jane Fonda and Dr. Linda Rae Murray, an occupational medicine expert and activist. In between we heard from several front-line workers about their experiences working during the pandemic. We also heard from organizers and workers who are advocating for protections for front-line workers. If you were unable to attend the town hall, you can watch the video or view the slides or watch the recordings with individual presenters.
