This handbook provides an overview of the OSHA regulations/standards for safety in the workplace as they apply to health care sites. The well-informed health care provider works safely and protects self, the facility, and those receiving care, from incidents that may result in injury or illness. The author clearly explains the content of applicable standards. Health care providers are informed of the minimum required safe practices, specific responsibilities for compliance, what to do if an incident occurs, and what information/documentation is required to report an incident. Facilities are subject to OSHA surveys to evaluate compliance with the standards. The health care provider who knows his or her responsibilities as they relate to the applicable standards and works safely is an asset to the facility.
