Occupational Safety and Health Manager
Safety is everyone’s responsibility. Identification of potential hazards and how to protect yourself against injuries. The following sections can be used for in-service training within your section/clinic.

719-526-7371

All personnel must have area-specific annual training (birth-month training is not acceptable) in Safety, Fire Prevention, and Hazard Communication.

Links for slides are available below for the mandatory training.


  • MSDS
    • The days of the disorganized paper Materiel Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are gone. Now, with only a few keystrokes, you can view, download, print and distribute MSDS with ease. 
    • When a new chemical is brought in, it must be added to the chemical inventory and an MSDS placed in the book.
    • MSDS's can be found on most company websites.  if you can not find it, contact the safety office for assistance.
    • This facilitates a safer work environment, saves time, lowers costs, and reduces risk and liability associated with meeting MSDS compliance standards set by OSHA, EPA and the Joint Commission (JCAHO).

     

  • TRAINING

    There is some mandatory training that must be conducted for all personnel in regards to Safety, Fire Prevention/Life Safety, and Hazard Communication. This training is annual and must be area-specific. Contact the Safety Office to schedule training.

    A training roster which lists the name of instructor, date/time of training, and actual signatures (if illegible, the names also need to be printed) of attendees needs to be attached to the training outline and kept in the area. We recommend this be kept in the Safety, Fire, or MSDS book.

    Ergonomics -Ergonomic injuries are some that have the potential to stay with you forever. Carpal tunnel, repetitive motion, proper lifting, etc are all issues individuals need  to be aware of.  For a survey, contact the Safety Office.

    • Personal Protective Equipment - When do you need it? What do you need? How do you know?  Everyone needs to know prior to starting work.
    • Bloodborne Pathogens- How does someone protect themselve's from blood/body fluids exposure? Who do they contact if there is a blood/body fluids exposure? What procedures should they follow?
    • What chemicals are you working with? How can you be exposed? How do you prevent exposure? What if you have a chemical spill? 
    • Office Safety There are many items and actions in an office that can cause an injury. What are they and how can you prevent an accident?
  • ACCIDENT/INJURY REPORTING

    • EACH Accident Reporting Procedure- a copy of the packets are located in all sections.

    • EACH Accident Form - a copy of the packets are located in all sections.

  • REGULATIONS
