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.
All personnel must have area-specific annual training
(birth-month training is not acceptable) in Safety, Fire Prevention, and Hazard
Links for slides are available below for the mandatory training.
- 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
standards set by OSHA, EPA and the Joint Commission (JCAHO).
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
