OSMA Offers Annual OSHA Training May 15

The Ohio State Medical Association (OSMA) is dedicated to providing physicians and their staff with excellent opportunities for professional development. On May 15, the OSMA will host “Annual OSHA Training: Keeping your Office Staff Safe/Healthy,” a half-day course aimed at providing an opportunity for health care professionals to complete their required annual OSHA training. Remember, OSHA does not exempt physicians from this requirement.

The cost of prevention and education far outweighs the cost of post-exposure treatment and possible death from a workplace injury or incident. By attending this workshop participants will be able to differentiate between the various types of penalties and how to anticipate and avoid hazards, as well as learn the tools and guidelines to navigate to the sometimes complex regulations for OSHA safety in health care facilities.

This year, OSHA is trending towards infection control and the Hazardous Communication standard (HazCom) as the primary targets this year. This session will include training on the revised Hazard Communication Standard. You will attain a better understanding of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Chemical Classification and Labeling and how it applies to your practice.

This program has been approved for 3.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. This program meets AAPC guidelines for 3.0 CEUs in Core B. Please note: Core B can comprise no more than 33 percent (1/3) of the total Core CEU’s.

This class is scheduled for May 15, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the OSMA in Hilliard. To attend, you must register by May 8.

Registration fees: $99 for any staff of an OSMA physician, $99 for any OSMA physician and $149 for non-members. Click to register online or download the flyer for more information.
