Healthcare Safety Training DVD’s
More workers are injured in the healthcare and social assistance industry than any sector of work. Healthcare workers face a number of serious safety and health hazards. These include bloodborne pathogens, biological hazards, potential chemical and drug exposures, waste anesthetic gas exposures, respiratory hazards, ergonomic hazards from lifting and repetitive tasks, laser hazards, workplace violence, hazards associated with laboratories, and radioactive material and x-ray hazards.
Some of the potential chemical exposures include formaldehyde, used for preservation of specimens for pathology; ethylene oxide, glutaraldehyde, and paracetic acid used for sterilization; and numerous other chemicals used in healthcare laboratories.
OSHA has published a Safety and Health Topic Guide for those workplace hazards facing healthcare workers.
