Respiratory Protection Training! (NEW)

Compliance PhD has recently added a new training to the Online Training Library: Respiratory Protection. This new training is currently available to all current clients of Compliance PhD and is available at no cost.

Q: Who is responsible to take this Respiratory Protection Training?
A: If a covered entity requires the use of a respirator, then the covered entity must develop a comprehensive Respiratory Protection Program.

Q: We use surgical facemasks. Is that the same thing?
A: No. A facemask is a loose-fitting disposable mask that covers your nose and mouth. Types of facemasks include: Surgical Masks, Dental Masks, Isolation Masks, and Laser Masks.

Facemasks prevent large droplets from contamination from a person wearing a mask. If your practice ONLY USES FACEMASKS, then you DO NOT need to have a Respiratory Protection Program.

Q: What is a respirator for?
A: A respirator is needed to prevent two main hazards: 1. Airborne Infectious Agents. 2. Gaseous Chemical Exposures.

Q: Who is responsible to ensure staff are trained in the practice Respiratory Protection Program?
A: Respiratory Protection is the responsibility of the practice OSHA Compliance Officer. The OSHA Compliance Officer must ensure that the program includes site specific Policies and Procedures.

All questions should be directed to the office OSHA Compliance Officer. Compliance PhD is also available to answer your compliance questions.

Email your questions to: help@compliancephd.com

OSHA Focusing on "Key Hazards" in Healthcare Industry


OSHA has recently instructed inspectors to focus in on the healthcare industry and look for what they describe are “key hazards” during their inspections.
OSHA maintains random inspections, but insists that many of their inspections are triggered by complaints, referrals, and severe injury reports
What are the “key hazards?” 

OSHA has stated that they will focus on potential hazards involving, “musculoskeletal disorders related to patient handling; bloodborne pathogens, and workplace violence…”

Compliance PhD provides specific online training in these areas; including “Safe Patient Handling, OSHA-Bloodborne Pathogens, and Workplace Violence. 
Dr. David Michaels, assistant secretary of labor for OSHA has stated, “Workers in hospitals, nursing homes, and long-term care facilities have work injury and illness rates that are among the highest in the country, and virtually all of these injuries are preventable."
 
If you have questions about your workplace safety programs, please contact your office OSHA Officer.
You can also contact Compliance PhD Help Staff with any additional questions. help@compliancephd.com
