2021 workplace goals when it comes to COVID-19 has shifted with the increase of impact for Employers when it comes to testing, vaccination and litigation. OSHA in 2020 provided guidance to Employers to open the workplace safely. However, guidance is not enforcement and many companies had no consequence if they did not follow the guidance. These inconsistencies put Employers and employees at risk for contracting COVID-19. 2021 has changed the focus to have OSHA be the enforcement on the safety and health factors to have employees return to work safely and provide the necessary direction for them. The new administration has increased their compliance efforts to ensure that OSHA is overseeing the violations of regulations in the workplace and increased fines and penalties.
