Essential workers are putting themselves in harm’s way working during the COVID-19 outbreak so we can have safe food. But workers don’t currently have the protections they need to be safe.
That's why we’re urging our senators to support legislation (S3677) that would protect workers by implementing an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety rule.
This rule would protect all frontline employees who are being required to work, including those who work in food production, with enforceable occupational safety standards, including the requirement that they be provided with adequate protective equipment during the pandemic.
Urge your senators to support S3677 and include language for a mandatory occupational safety rule in the next COVID response package!
