Thank you for posting this OSHA's letter of interpretation distinguishing human to human from animal to human transmittal of infectious agents. While animals can infect humans, it's interesting to note that OSHA does not have a standard like the Bloodborne Pathogen Standard. OSHA also does not seem ready to create additional employer obligations as mentioned in the letter. OSHA's General Duty Clause may apply in case of workplace exposure to zoonotic (animal to human transmission) pathogens.
