Weekly poll: Surviving an OSHA inspection, right now

By: April 9th, 2012 Email This Post Print This Post

OSHA’s recently announced National Emphasis Program  (NEP) for nursing and residential care facilities will focus on exposure to blood and other potentially infectious material; exposure to other communicable diseases such as tuberculosis; exposure to hazardous chemicals and drugs; ergonomic stressors related to lifting patients; workplace violence; slips, trips and falls.

Regardless of your facility type, how confident are you that your healthcare facility would be citation-free if an OSHA NEP inspection occurred right now? Take the OSHA Healthcare Advisor Weekly Poll and let us know.

After taking the survey, click here for the results.

Is there such a thing as a citation free OSHA inspection? Of the one’s I have been involved with, I have had some that were penalty free, but never citation free. (probably been in at least 15 inspections in various facilities)
