"OSHA@50Y: INFECTIOUS DISEASE STANDARD FOR WORKERS EXPOSED TO COVID-19 URGENTLY NEEDED"(ENGLISH)

The May AJPH features occupational health and safety, an issue that is both timely and topical in the middle of the dreadful pandemic that is affecting the planet, but in particular workers, whose mission is to keep the economy and public health functioning. My guests are David Michaels (Former OSHA Assistant-Secretary), Peg Seminario (AFL-CIO) and John Howard (NIOSH DIrector). Their message is: Congress needs to quickly require OSHA to pass an infectious disease standard to protect health care and other workers exposed to Covid-19. A draft of the standard exists.
