How did workers’ donning fanny packs ensure needle safety compliance with inspectors from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)? Hear this novel approach and many other "real-world" solutions described by a California infection control professional who has been facing down OSHA inspectors for about two years. Tapes are now available at $199 of our recent teleconference: Needle Safety Mandate: What You Must Know Before OSHA Inspectors Come Calling. Each of your staff will also have the opportunity to earn one nursing contact hour free.
With the the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations now saying it will enforce the same requirements, the insightful grass-roots guidance and clear explanation of all the requirements in this teleconference can ensure full compliance at your facility. California was the first state to face this issue several years ago. Tales of actual OSHA inspections — giving precise details of what was regarded as compliant or what drew a citation — are revealed by Cynthia Fine, RN, MSN, CIC, infection control/employee health professional in Oakland, CA.
Our expert faculty also includes veteran OSHA observer Katherine West, BSN, MSEd, CIC, an infection control consultant with Infection Control/ Emerging Concepts Inc in Manassas, VA. West provides a straightforward, practical explanation of what the federal changes require of individual ICPs.
