Are you the lucky one that is in charge of OSHA compliance for your office? If you are, then where to begin with the required paperwork can leave your head spinning! Keep in mind, there is a lot of paperwork required beyond the proof-of-annual-training certificate that your employees need to sign. Let’s take a look at what else is required to be comprehensively compliant:
As of December 1, 2013, an additional module to OSHA called The Global Harmonization System (GHS) requires additional training and paperwork for all of your employees. GHS is an international chemical safety program. GHS Certification is now a required part of your OSHA paperwork. Also, all employees should sign forms with their risk of occupational exposures categorized, and rated by professional position. OSHA manuals are also due to be updated, and written to GHS Standard. Are you confused, maybe a little intimidated? You want to do the right thing, but where do you turn?
Rather than try to figure out and find the paperwork yourself, finding a reliable, knowledgeable OSHA compliance company will take the burden off of you completely. This one decision in hiring the right OSHA experts can be the single, most important decision you can make regarding your offices’ OSHA compliance. You’ll want to look for a company that can supply all forms and training needs so you can do what you do best, dentistry!
All of the Dental Enhancements products and services come with guided attention from one of our OSHA/GHS experts and you get all necessary forms customized for your team and in electronic format. (Microsoft Word and PDF).
Paperwork: you either have too much or can get caught with not having enough. Don’t risk it! Call Dental Enhancements and get on the right paper trail!
