Medical and Dental OSHA Training as Cold and Flu Season Begins

As cold and flu season approaches, brushing up on OSHA medical and dental training is a great way to prepare for the extra influx of patients that you will see in your practice. There are several training courses that provide you with valuable information you can apply to your everyday work in the medical and dental fields.

Blood-borne pathogens training should be completed annually, so, depending on when you last completed your coursework, now may be a great time to take this course. You will learn about the use of needles and sharps, and you will receive detailed information in the event that you become exposed while performing your duties. Proper procedures for the disposal of medical waste are also explored. Since you will likely be administering vaccinations during this time of year, blood-borne pathogens training is an excellent refresher for the season.

If your medical or dental facility houses any x-ray equipment, you will probably need to take the ionizing radiation course, if you have not already. This class explores the different types of radiation exposure and provides you with detailed information about the proper safety precautions you should uphold while taking x-rays.

OSHA medical and dental training is designed to keep you and your patients safe during the course of any scheduled or emergency visit, giving you the tools to prevent contamination and the spread of disease.
