U.S. workplace safety agency steps up COVID-19 inspections
Reuters: The U.S. Labor Department will expand inspections of businesses to reduce job-site hazards related to the new coronavirus as employees begin returning to work across the country, although the policy falls short of demands by worker advocates. The revised policy, issued late Tuesday by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, expands inspections beyond those in health care facilities, which the agency said last month it was prioritizing to conserve resources.
