Now more than ever, due to COVID-19, the health care industry is on the forefront of safety, and they need to be on the forefront of safety and health practices and management as well. Employers who provide inpatient and outpatient medical, nursing and dental services to the public may face the widest range of job-related hazard/exposures of all occupational business sectors. Exposures can include chemical and physical agents, pharmaceuticals, infectious diseases, and ionizing radiation to name a few.
Medical employers are required by the Occupational Safety and Health Act to provide a workplace free from recognized hazards that may pose harm to their employees. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) creates and enforces mandatory requirements (OSHA Standards) many of which apply to medical and related operations.
This two-day course will cover the background and relevance of applied Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Management practices and will specifically discuss and clarify those OSHA regulations applicable to health care operations.
