OSHA & Infection Control
Occupational Safety and Health Administration
OSHA compliance for dentistry is multi-faceted, as there are numerous safety standards that apply to dental practices. These include general safety regulations regarding fire safety, emergency evacuation, infection control/bloodborne pathogens, chemical safety and more.
Mary Govoni & Associates provides a comprehensive range of services to assist dental practices in complying with all the applicable OSHA standards. These services include employee training, both initial and annually-required updates; documentation of safety plans and all other OSHA-required documentation, assistance in the case of an OSHA complaint or inspection; and abatement assistance in case of OSHA citations and fines.
Our consultants are certified OSHA Outreach Trainers with over 25 years of experience in coaching dental teams on compliance issues. We can assist with compliance in states where federal OSHA rules apply as well where state-specific OSHA rules apply.
