How to Prepare for a COVID-19 Rule from OSHA

Interested in what lies on the horizon when it comes to OSHA and COVID-19? Editor Sydny Shepard interviews Labor and Employment Attorney Lillian Moon about how workplaces can prepare for new impending rules.

If you listened to our last episode, or if you listen to any news at all about the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, you’d know that that there are some big things on the horizon in regards to worker protection against exposure to the Coronavirus.

For our episode today, I thought that I would bring listeners a conversation all about what to expect from OSHA in the next few weeks or months, as well as what you can do to anticipate these movements to keep your workers safe.

I was so pleased to get to spend a little time with our guest of the podcast today, Lillian Moon. Lillian had a great answer to all my questions about the impending rule from OSHA, but before we jump into that interview, here’s a little more information on Lillian:

Lillian is Partner at Akerman Law Firm and has extensive knowledge of workplace safety and health issues. She represents and defends employers during all aspects of OSHA inspections, investigations, citations, settlement negotiations, and hearings. Lilly also assists employers with preventative practices such as conducting compliance audits, creating and revising safety policies and OSHA compliance programs, and creating workplace safety programs.

  • The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit for more information. 3
