NACHC members are eligible for a discount on this webinar series. Please contact Vacheria Tutson to obtain the discount code. 


As of July 21, 2021, covered healthcare employers, including health centers, are required to comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)’s Occupational Exposure to COVID-19: Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS).  The ETS requires covered healthcare employers to implement a multi-layered approach to controlling exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace, including patient and employee screening and management, providing personal protective equipment (PPE), implementing physical distancing and barriers, and supporting vaccination by providing reasonable time and paid leave.  While a number of these requirements will be familiar to health centers, there is still a substantial amount of work to comply with the ETS.

This two part interactive webinar series will explore the ETS and how health centers can, if covered, come into compliance. 

Target Audience

  • Compliance Officers/Risk Managers
  • C-Suite Members, including CEOs and COOs
  • Clinic Directors
  • Human Resources Directors/Managers
  • Facilities Personnel

Learning Objectives

After this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Evaluate whether the ETS applies to your health center or whether your health center is exempt. 
  • Understand the requirements of ETS. 
  • Discuss the intersection of the ETS and state OSHA requirements. 
  • Understand the possible ramifications of noncompliance. 
  • Discuss available resources to assist your health center in complying with the ETS.
