Petition File No. 583:

To amend California Code of Regulations, Title 8

Petition File No. 583
Stephen Knight, Executive Director
Frances C. Schreiberg, Labor & Employment Committee

Petitioners request to amend Title 8 standards to create two new regulations. The first, a temporary emergency standard that would provide specific protections to California employees who may have exposure to COVID-19, but who are not protected by the Aerosol Transmissible Diseases standards (Sections 5199 and 5199.1). The second standard would be a permanent rulemaking effort to protect workers from infectious diseases including novel pathogens (e.g. COVID-19).
