No programmed inspections under the SEP shall be scheduled.
For your information, the effective date of the new standard is March 6. The effective date for the exposure control plan requirement is May 5; for the training and recordkeeping requirements the date is June 4; and for all other requirements, including the vaccine, the date is July 6.
We would also like to remind you that, as with all other technical questions
from the public, callers should not be referred directly to the Office of
Health Compliance Assistance (OHCA). Rather, if a coordinator is unable to
answer a particular question, the regional staff person should contact OHCA
for assistance and then provide the public with the requested information.
