CAL/OSHA Passes Two Safety Regulations

The California Farmer magazine reports that CAL/OSHA (California OSHA) has "adopted two standards that are the first in the nation to protect workers from zoonotic aerosol transmissible pathogens (communicable diseases)."

Read the California Farmer article here.

The new regulations apply to people who have contact with live animals, or animal products. The regulation states:

"every employer who has employees with occupational exposure to animals or untreated animal products, byproducts or wastes that may be a source of exposure to zoonotic aerosol transmissible pathogens shall establish, implement, and maintain effective procedures for control of zoonotic diseases."
