Sen. Chris Coons on Returning to Offices in Pandemic: OSHA is “AWOL” | GZERO World

In a blistering response to questions about federal workers being asked to return to offices as COVID cases climb around the U.S., Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) says not enough prep work has been done to establish clear and consistent standards for safe workplaces. OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, has been "AWOL" on the matter, Sen. Coons tells Ian Bremmer. "They have refused to issue an emergency standard for the return to work, which they could, and which would give both employers and employees a standard that they can look to for guidance about when and how it's safe to return to work," he said in an interview for GZERO World.
