Congress points to airborne transmissible disease standard

OSHA Healthcare Connection, July 28, 2009

If the House Appropriations Committee has its way, OSHA will develop an airborne transmissible disease (ATD) standard in fiscal 2010 similar to the one recently approved in California, according to Inside OSHA, July 20.

The ATD part of the report focused the Labor-Health and Human Services budgets which call for $555 million for OSHA, an increase of $41.5 million from last year.
