OSHA (ALL OFFICES):
There are more than 8 OSHA regulations and guidelines that physician offices must be in compliance with. OSHA can inspect your facility at any time. OSHA can fine you for any violations. Many physicians are only in compliance with the Bloodborne Pathogen Standard and have not addressed other OSHA standards. Ninety percent of the offices inspected are cited and fined for violation related to Hazardous Communication, Occupational Exposure, Tuberculosis or Ergonomic standards! Safety is more important now than ever before. All physicians are responsible to provide a safe work environment and educate their employees on safety policies. All safety training programs are accredited and are customized to the facility and tasks performed The following OSHA services are available:

Each presentation comes with a handout and participants receive a certificate of training upon completing the program. Training booklets can be ordered separately to train new hires between annual programs.
