It’s no joke, having to face OSHA Compliance (especially if you are the one in charge of it!) is a pain! No worries, sit back click your heels together and we are about to make the pain subside. Keep in mind these (3) factors and you will be flying high with OSHA compliance:
1. Comprehensive Is Key!: In 2013 OSHA compliance mandated that dental offices begin to implement the Global Harmonization System (GHS). By December 1, 2013 it was required that all employees be trained to this GHS-Standard. Proof of this training is also required. Your OSHA Manual will also need to be updated to this new GHS standard. Finally, your required OSHA Employee Paperwork needs to be updated too. Don’t feel overwhelmed or discouraged. Simply choose a comprehensive GHS training solution. This one seems to be written by the tooth fairy herself. It’s logical and stress-free!
2. Seek Expert Advice: Plain and simple: Work with OSHA Experts! The new protocols are complex and “You don’t know what you don’t know…(but you need to!) Don’t put your office at risk for a stressful OSHA inspection. It’s not worth the agony. Be sure to choose an OSHA compliance company that will protect and guide you. (This company makes it easy!)
3. Are You Up-to-Date? There is no excuse for non-compliance, And “not knowing” is not a good answer! GHS Standards will undoubtedly change and update. Stay in-touch with a compliance company that will provide comprehensive yet easy-to-understand compliance updates. Choose an OSHA Compliance Training Company that will share updates with you throughout the year and provide an interactive relationship. You will gain comfort, confidence, and peace-of-mind.
