First review the following general policy of OSHA and then, demonstrate your understanding by creating a poster that reminds employees about any safe practice pertaining to a medical practice (e.g. handwashing, handling lab specimens, keeping work areas clear of obstruction such as open file cabinet drawers, handling sharps etc.)
Attach the poster as a Word document or PDF and submit through this drop box.
(Note the link in this module to the OSHA website to research ideas for your poster – you are encouraged to also search for additional resources). NOTE: A good poster attracts the attention of busy employees and is engaging but quick to read. It can be a reminder or a full procedure.
“Under the OSH Act, employers are responsible for providing a safe and healthful workplace. OSHA’s mission is to assure safe and healthful workplaces by setting and enforcing standards, and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance. Employers must comply with all applicable OSHA standards. Employers must also comply with the General Duty Clause of the OSH Act, which requires employers to keep their workplace free of serious recognized hazards.”
