OSHA Requirement Training due by December 1, 2013

Nancy Leveille and Karen Morris in Clinical & Quality

Per an AHCA memo received today,  OSHA has revised its Hazard Communication Standard to align with the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.  All nursing centers and assisted living centers must train staff on this new standard by December 1, 2013.  Attached is a summary (FAQ) of the training requirements and a brief power point presentation that can be used in the required training.  These were prepared by Jackson Lewis LLP, AHCA’s OSHA consultant.  A summary of the OSHA Final Rule related to these changes can be found here: https://www.osha.gov/dsg/hazcom/HCSFactsheet.html.
