National Safety Month – What will you be doing?

By: December 18th, 2013 Email This Post Print This Post

With Christmas around the corner, it’s hard to be thinking about February already. But we at Medical Environment Update are busy at work on that issue of the newsletter.

February is National Safety Awareness Month, and we figured we’d celebrate by reaching out to our readers and asking what you do to celebrate and bring safety to the forefront in your workplace.

Do you have any special training ideas or activities that you do with your employees? Do you have any tools or techniques that you could share? We’d like to highlight you in our newsletter story and let others know what sets you apart and hopefully share your knowledge and experience.

While we’re at it, we’ve spent a lot of time writing about how to survive an OSHA inspection and what to expect from OSHA next year. Have any of you had a recent OSHA inspection? If so, we’d love to hear from you! Perhaps you could share the experience – what did the inspection look like? What did they find? Was it a positive or negative experience?

Your input could help your colleagues get ready for the next inspection.

I’m looking to get the next issue’s stories written by New Year’s so any help would be appreciated. As always, feel free to email me at jpalmer@hcpro.com

Thanks and Happy Holidays!

John

February is the month we visit each practice site for a “mock-OSHA” inspection to help point out any deficiencies and correct them. There is no penalty associated with this inspection so employees are very forthcoming with problems they have experienced and possible solutions they have come up with. We find this to be very helpful in having the employees be more mindful of safety compliance.
