OSHA Offers New Health Care Compliance Assistance Module

OSHA has released a new Health Care Industry Quick Start module for its Compliance Assistance Quick Start, the agency's web-based tool that introduces employers and employees, especially those at small businesses, to the free online compliance assistance resources.

The new Health Care Industry Quick Start module (www.osha.gov/dcsp/compliance_assistance/quickstarts/health_care/index_hc.htm) is directed primarily at small employers in the health care field. The module is made up of eight steps including OSHA requirements that apply to many healthcare employers; developing a comprehensive safety and health program; training employees; and recordkeeping, reporting and posting requirements.

Compliance Assistance Quick Start (www.osha.gov/dcsp/compliance_assistance/quickstarts/index.html) provides step-by-step guidance on how to identify OSHA requirements and guidance materials that may apply to specific workplaces in areas of health care, general industry, construction, and Hispanic outreach.

"This new Compliance Assistance Quick Start module is another example of how OSHA is making valuable information easily accessible to employers and employees so they can build and sustain a safe and healthful work environment," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Edwin G. Foulke Jr. "It is important that we make every effort to help put educational materials into the hands of stakeholders."
