Face Coverings in the Workplace:
Keeping Up with OSHA’s Changing Rules and Guidance  

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, OSHA and state agencies have continually revised their guidance and rules for wearing face coverings, face masks, and respirators in the workplace. At the same time, 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. And with the new face covering requirements of OSHA’s vaccination and testing emergency temporary standard (ETS) looming, it’s easy to see why many organizations are bewildered by the frequent rule changes and fear enforcement if they are inadvertently out of compliance.
