Vital stats: Passing an OSHA NEP inspection

OSHA’s recently announced a National Emphasis Program [1] (NEP) for nursing and residential care facilities will focus on exposure to blood and OPIM; exposure to other communicable diseases such as TB; exposure to hazardous chemicals and drugs; ergonomic stressors related to lifting patients; workplace violence; and slips, trips, and falls. OSHA Healthcare Advisor asked its readers, regardless of facility type, how confident they were that their healthcare facility would be citation-free if an OSHA NEP inspection occurred right now.
