It has become painfully obvious that coronavirus has changed the landscape of our lives in nearly every way. A year into the pandemic, OH&S Editor Sydny Shepard is diving into the biggest issues safety professionals are dealing with: a new National Emphasis Program from OSHA to protect employees from the virus, new FDA recommendations on how to add COVID-19 screening tests to their employee testing programs and how to incentivize coronavirus vaccinations without mandating them—a move that could lead to costly litigation.
