The On-site team OSHA program meets required initial training and annual bloodborne pathogen requirements. The training covers OSHA required safety plans such as: Injury & Illness Prevention, Ergonomics, Fire, Emergency, General Office Safety, Medical Waste Disposal, Exposure Control, and the New Hazard Communication Standard.
The dental team will learn how to prevent accidents, properly manage an exposure incident, label hazardous substances, and create/maintain the office Safety Data Sheet (formerly called MSDS) manual. As part of team training, a sharps safety device evaluation and mock OSHA inspection will be conducted. Any deficiencies will be noted and written instructions for correcting will be provided. Photographs are taken for training purposes to show safety or infection control hazards.
Your OSHA and (M)SDS manuals will be reviewed for accuracy and updated. All the required record keeping forms and training documentation will be completed and collected for your files.
After team training, I will spend time as needed to train the dentist and/or designated OSHA coordinator on how to keep the practice OSHA compliant going forward. I'll provide a written Mock OSHA Inspection report listing any areas of non compliance and information on how to correct. You'll have step by step guidance on OSHA compliance and instructions on "who does what". Plus you'll understand how to conduct your own OSHA training whether it is the annual bloodborne training or new employee training.
I won't just train you and then leave. Your OSHA program includes access to me for one year of telephone support, and includes:
- OSHA training, consultation, and mock inspection
- One year of Telephone support
- Binder with New Employee/Annual Training Checklist/Forms
- Binder for Exposure Incidents
- Signs and labels as needed
- Continuing Education credit
To help you stay on track and compliant, I will remind you when you are due to conduct the annual OSHA training. You can conduct training yourself, attend a local OSHA seminar, use home study courses or webinars to fulfill the training requirement. And if you prefer, I can come back to conduct your team training.
I also offer:
- One on One Train the Trainer Programs
- Telephone Coaching for the dentist or OSHA Coordinator
