Weekly poll: Probable OSHA violations in my facility

By: September 27th, 2010 Email This Post Print This Post

A report obtained by Medical Environment Update shows bloodborne pathogens and hazard communication as the standards most cited in inspections of medical and dental practices. Would this hold true if your practice was inspected today? Take our poll and let us know.

I am finding resistance from a substantial proportion of potential clients for OSHA training. I am open to any comments on how to address these objections. The resistant prospects fall into four groups:

1) Those believing that they are too small an entity to need the training. (“We only have three employees.”)

2) Those believing that they have complied with the requirement by attending a CE course off site. (“We just took the course last spring at the state convention – we’re up to date.”)

3) Those thumbing their noses at the law. (“They’re never going to inspect our office!”)

4) Those who are receiving on-site training, but it is not comprehensive (e.g., their training covers BBP only). (“We already have another company come in for our OSHA training.”)

I would appreciate any comments and suggestions.
