Cal/OSHA Publishes Updated COVID-19 Model Prevention Program

By Thomas Lee


On June 29, 2021, Cal/OSHA published a revised COVID-19 Model Prevention Program that reflect the changes made to the Emergency Temporary Standards (ETS) on June 17, 2021.

Most employers in California are required to establish and implement an effective written COVID-19 Prevention Program (CPP) pursuant to the Emergency Temporary Standards in place for COVID-19 (California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 8, section 3205(c)). Cal/OSHA publishes this model program to assist employers with creating their own unique CPP tailored to their workplace. While using the model CPP does not ensure the employer is meeting all requirements of the ETS, it is a useful starting document for employers.

The revised COVID-19 Model Prevention Program can be downloaded from Cal/OSHA's website below:
