OSHA & Hazard Compliance

Hazards Can Arise at Any Time in Your Practice. Are You Prepared?

OSHA encompasses a list of extremely important regulations about workplace safety. We know from our own experience in the industry that eye care practices have always faced their fair share of potential hazards: contagious diseases, sharps, lasers, and unwieldy diagnostic equipment, in addition to the usual list of office risks. As that list has grown with circumstances like COVID-19, so has the number of questions we must ask ourselves:

Can you produce documentation your staff has been trained on OSHA and CDC regulations?

Make Sure Your Practice is Prepared for an OSHA Inspection

Avoiding an OSHA audit can be a matter of preparation. Here are a few of the most commonly overlooked items that should be integrated into your practice’s routine safety standards:

  • Personal Protective Equipment: Supply gloves, gowns, eye protection, and masks to staff for protection against pathogens like HIV and Hepatitis B. Regular training on the correct usage is essential as well as proper disposal procedure.
  • Bloodborne Pathogens: Establish comprehensive safeguards, including vaccination, exposure control plans, and procedures for handling potential exposure incidents.
  • Hazard Communication Standard: Maintain accurate labeling and safety data sheets for all chemicals used, ensuring staff understands potential hazards and safe handling procedures.
  • Emergency Action Plans: Develop detailed plans for emergencies, including fire or natural disasters, outlining evacuation routes, communication methods, and staff responsibilities.
  • Medical and Exposure Records: Accurately document all workplace injuries, exposures, or medical treatments, retaining these records as mandated by OSHA.
