Department of Labor and Industry Division of Occupational Safety and Health Letters
It has come to our attention that the Department of Labor and Industry Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) has begun to respond to safety related COVID-19 workplace employee complaints. Read more about the DOH and CDC guidelines for essential workers here.
This is a standard format letter that DOSH sends, regarding a situation where there has been no serious accident or incident and they are seeking a timely response of corrective actions that have been made to mitigate the complaint. The recipient of the letter is also instructed to post the letter from DOSH in a place where all employees can see it, for a period of a minimum of three days.
Any employer that receives a letter from DOSH must pay attention to the instructions within the letter and to the time frames noted. While a compliance inspection of the property is not imminent, failure to comply with the provisions in the letter may result in a compliance inspector visit to the property. Whether your business is identified as an essential business or not, if the letter arrives in your mail, pay strict attention to the contents of the letter.
