The attached document is from the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announcement regarding short term (March 9, 2022 – June 9, 2022) increase in focused COVID-19 inspections and enforcement directed at hospitals and SNFs that treat or handle COVID-19 patients.

 

Facilities may be selected if they meet one of these three criteria:

  • Follow-up inspection of any prior inspection where a COVID-19-related citation or hazard alert letter (HAL) was issued.

  • Follow-up or monitoring inspections for randomly selected closed COVID-19 unprogrammed activity (UPA), to include COVID-19 complaints and Rapid Response Investigations (RRIs); or

  • Monitoring inspections for randomly selected, remote-only COVID-19 inspections where COVID-19-related citations were previously issued.
