The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is responsible for ensuring safe working conditions for all employees.

In 2016, OSHA made a major update to the MSDS/SDS (material safety data sheets/safety data sheets) labeling requirements and employee training that required mandatory office compliance after June 1, 2016, including additional documentation requirements.  OSHA constantly develops new solutions and standards to protect employees from injury and illness.  It is the responsibility of employers to stay up-to-date on any OSHA changes to remain legally compliant, or face fines and costly claims that could lead to lawsuits.  Dentists and their employees should update themselves at least annually and place appropriate documentation into their office manuals.

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 has 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 brings staff, a separate employer/employee training attestation document (that the employer and staff will sign at the end of the course) will be given to the employer to place into their office manual.  Employers and their employees must be present together, and arrangements will be made for them to sign the attestation document.



In order to provide an effective learning experience, Dr. Mychajliw will be utilizing a slide presentation, resource links for educational materials, and a live question and answer session.
