“Annual OSHA-Mandated Update for Dentists and Staff; What You Need to Know to Comply with the Law”
This course includes New Information including additional requirements for Dental Practice. This requirement is separate from the NYS Mandatory Infection Control Re-Licensure requirement of every four years for dentists and hygienists. OSHA 29 CFR Part 1910.1030 States: Personnel subject to Occupational Exposure should receive Infection Control Training on initial assignment, when new tasks or procedures affect their occupational exposure, and at minimum annually. Staff are encouraged to attend and must be registered for the same course with their employers. (In the live webinar, all must be present with video on.)
EDUCATION OBJECTIVES & GOALS
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is responsible for ensuring safe working conditions for all employees. The goal of this course is to inform attendees of the OSHA changes. The updates will be discussed in detail with handouts or reference links that will help guide the practitioner, hygienist and staff comply with the mandate that was instituted in 2016, and any other changes that have occurred after that date. Practitioners are encouraged to bring their staff members to facilitate compliance: otherwise, practitioners must fabricate their own document acknowledging dissemination of this update to their staff and place such documentation into the office manual. If an employer has staff attend the webinar, a separate employer/employee training attestation document will be emailed after course completion to the employer to place into their office manual. Employers and their employees must be present, acknowledged in the webinar attendance record.
