Workplace safety is a basic condition every business owner must provide for their employees. However, it takes a lot more work than just assessing potential risks on your own or relying on past experiences to address current issues.
There are a number of regulatory entities that have specific guidelines in place designed to keep your staff safe while performing their jobs. The most notable of which is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, established in 1971.

In addition, these rules change constantly. It complicates things even more, but it is necessary so the guidelines remain relevant in the face of evolving technologies and improving work processes.
Clearly, while the concept of workplace safety may seem fundamental, it is not something that you should take on by yourself, especially if you have a medical, dental, or veterinary practice.
That is where Physician’s Resource comes in.
The Importance of Working With an OSHA Compliance Consultant
According to the National Safety Council or NSC, the healthcare sector sees the most number of nonfatal injuries and illnesses that lead to days away from work among all industries. The NSC is the leading non-profit advocate for safety in the US, focusing on the elimination of the main causes of preventable workplace injuries and deaths.
So if you operate in the medical, dental, or veterinary field, it is normal to feel some pressure when it comes to providing a safe and healthful work environment for your staff. The question is, how do you go about it?
OSHA’s safety requirements provide a solid framework for you to work on. By following its guidelines, you can rest assured that you are building a strong safety program for your practice and doing your best to protect your employees.
Our Compliance Consulting Process
Here at Physician’s Resource, we have a team of experts who can guide you in your journey to OSHA compliance.
We can take a good look at your facility and work closely with your staff to come up with a system that is both effective and easy to manage. This feature is vital because, for your safety program to work, all staff and management have to be involved. You can’t implement it at a meaningful level if it is too complicated or hard to execute at the grassroots level.
Keeping Up With OSHA SDS Requirements
Satisfying the SDS requirements is a big part of OSHA compliance. SDS stands for Safety Data Sheets, which is the updated version of the Material Safety Data Sheets or MSDS.
These are documents that contain all the relevant information relating to chemicals and other hazardous substances that are unique to certain work environments, like the set of biological and chemical considerations that can only be found in a veterinary care facility.
An SDS would contain things like the properties of each substance, the hazards it presents, and the safest ways to handle, store, and transport it — everything that your staff would need to know to work around such materials safely.
