Technology Solutions for Complying with COVID-19 Requirements
Co-Presented by Eric J. Conn (Conn Maciel Carey LLP) and Nick Eurek (Maptician)

In July, Virginia became the first state in the nation to promulgate a mandatory rule designed to reduce COVID-19 infections in the workplace. Virginia’s rule memorializes otherwise recognized and enforceable guidance from federal OSHA, the CDC, state and local departments of health, and governors’ offices all across the country, so the policies and controls that must be implemented there are mostly needed everywhere. Specifically, employers are required to:

• Assess and categorize potential exposures to COVID-19 in the workplace
• Implement a written infection control and response plan
• Promptly notify potentially exposed co-workers, VOSH/OSHA, and/or the Depart. of Health about infected workers

The core element of employers’ infection control strategies are the engineering, administrative, and safe work practice controls to enhance physical distancing (e.g., reconfiguring work stations, tracking where/when employees move throughout the workplace, thoughtful scheduling strategies like cohorting, staggering start/end/break times, etc.), conducting pre-work health screenings, and promptly contact tracing to facilitate notifications to potentially exposed employees. As is America’s way, innovators are developing technology solutions to aid in implementing these infection control strategies. A special guest from the innovative technology provider Maptician will identify technology solutions they have developed to assist employers in meeting these new regulatory requirements. Participants in this webinar will learn:

• Background about VOSH’s COVID-19 Standard and related OSHA and CDC guidance
• What to include in an effective Infection Control Plan
• Technology solution for key infection control strategies
