OSHA Compliance Program

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires US businesses to complete compliance training to ensure your business is meeting workplace safety standards. Selecting one can be an overwhelming process because there are so many options to choose from for your OSHA compliance program. 

MedPro Disposal provides compliance training options custom-tailored to fit the needs of your practice. With a secure online portal, it is easy for your compliance officer to manage certifications and are on-demand. 

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when selecting your compliance program. 

  

Be Specific

Being selective for an OSHA compliance program is a good thing. Each industry has a different OSHA training, ensuring even the smallest details are vital. For example, a construction company wants OSHA construction compliance training. The program will cover workplace safety regarding cranes and rigging, fall protection, and power tools. 

A healthcare practice must complete different OSHA compliance program. The training will cover workplace safety regarding health provisions, emergency plans, and personal protective equipment. Your practice will not get much value from a construction compliance program. 

Choosing the right compliance training program will ensure you meet your requirements and you will avoid fines from OSHA for missing the right safety protocol. 

 

Be Up to Code With COVID-19

As part of the current OSHA regulations, all compliance programs now includes COVID-19 training. There are strict requirements for the workplace, such as wearing personal protective equipment and making sure there are proper social distancing measures. 

Another requirement for COVID-19 standards is the proper documentation of covered employees. Any injuries or illnesses must be logged. COVID-19 cases must be documented and specified whether it is a work-related case, accurately tested by a lab, and if there are one or multiple cases. 

The virus is ever evolving, the Delta and Lambda variants are the latest threats. Until the pandemic is declared over, your practice must maintain COVID-19 safety standards. 

 

When selecting an OSHA compliance program, give yourself time to look through the fine details and be specific when. OSHA was created to keep your employees safe in the workplace, so it is imperative they receive the required and appropriate compliance training.
