PPE and COVID-19: Strategies for Avoiding the Spike
in Costly Enforcement Actions

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, OSHA has reported an increase in its enforcement of the personal protective equipment (PPE) standard, respiratory protection standard, and the General Duty Clause— the catch-all for any hazards not identified in existing OSHA standards—all related to COVID-19 inspections. Common pitfalls have included organizations’ failure to assess the workplace for COVID-19 hazards; failure to implement a written respiratory protection program; failure to provide appropriate medical evaluations and respirator fit tests; and failure to provide training on the proper use of respirators and other PPE. Not only are these violations costly and inconvenient, they are also entirely avoidable.
