The updated guidance supersedes previous Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Nevada OSHA) COVID-19 guidance released on May 20, 2022. This guidance has been updated in light of Governor Joe Lombardo’s Executive Order rescinding all COVID-19 related directives related to Governor Sisolak’s emergency declaration on March 12, 2020.
Because COVID-19 is a recognized health hazard in the workplace, employers continue to have a duty to protect their employees. Employers should evaluate the risk of COVID-19 in their workplace and incorporate an explanation of the methods used to identify, analyze, and control exposure to COVID-19 into the Written Safety Program required under NAC 618.540(1)(b).
While there are no State-specific requirements regarding COVID-19, the Federal requirements will remain in effect.

Did you know that OSHA penalties are going up?
In 2015, Congress passed the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act to advance effectiveness of civil monetary penalties and to maintain their deterrent effect. Under the Act, agencies are required to publish "catch up" rules that adjust the level of civil monetary penalties and make subsequent annual adjustments for inflation no later than January 15 of each year.
This year, January 15 fell on a Sunday and January 16 was a federal holiday. Therefore the new OSHA penalty amounts became effective January 17, 2023.
OSHA's maximum penalties for serious and other-than-serious violations will increase from $14,502 per violation to $15,625 per violation. The maximum penalty for willful or repeated violations will increase from $145,027 per violation to $156,259 per violation.
If you're worried about receiving an OSHA violation, or just want to learn what can you do to avoid penalties-call SCATS now for a consultation visit at no cost to you.

GUIDANCE ON R069-20 RELATED TO EMERGENCY EYEWASH STATIONS
Nevada OSHA adopted regulation R069-20 which included an adoption by reference of ANSI Z358.1-2014 for Emergency Eyewash and Shower Equipment. This regulation became effective April 11, 2022. Prior to this regulation, Nevada OSHA primarily cited non-compliance with emergency eye wash and shower equipment requirements under 29 CFR 1910.151(c) which states:
“Where the eyes or body of any person may be exposed to injurious corrosive materials, suitable facilities for quick drenching or flushing of the eyes and body shall be provided within the work area for immediate emergency use.”
By adopting ANSI Z358.1-2014, Nevada OSHA has identified the minimum design and installation criteria necessary to meet the definition of suitable facilities which is otherwise undefined in federal statute. Additionally, training requirements have been introduced as part of this adoption.
