OSHA to Federalize Infection Control Programs

There goes local responsibility and accountability for bad and good infection control decisions; once again monolithic centralized planners know whats best and will FORCE it upon you. And when such systems fail, they fail in major catastrophic ways.
"OSHA is considering the need for a standard to ensure that employers establish a comprehensive infection control program and control measures to protect employees from infectious disease exposures to pathogens that can cause significant disease. Workplaces where such control measures might be necessary include: health care, emergency response, correctional facilities, homeless shelters, drug treatment programs, and other occupational settings where employees can be at increased risk of exposure to potentially infectious people. A standard could also apply to laboratories, which handle materials that may be a source of pathogens, and to pathologists, coroners' offices, medical examiners, and mortuaries"
