OHSN Now Tracking Sharps Injuries and Blood and Body Fluid Exposures

NIOSH has released two new modules that track sharps incidents and blood and body fluid exposures among healthcare workers

NIOSH has announced it released two new modules for tracking sharps incidents and blood and body fluid exposures for healthcare workers using the Occupational Health Safety Network (OHSN). This network collects existing injury data to help identify jobs that are at the highest risk for injury within their facility.

“An annual survey of OHSN users shows overwhelming support for a system that helps mitigate high-risk aspects of the healthcare industry and guides prevention efforts,” said NIOSH Director John Howard, M.D. “A commitment to a culture of safety that emphasizes continuous monitoring and improvement benefits not only the worker, but the employer as well.”

The system allows participants to determine the cause of each incident and identifies trends to design relevant interventions and measures their impact.
