General Safety

Workers must be provided with the safety equipment that they are required to wear whenever there is a chance of coming in contact with:

  • Chemicals
  • Blood or body fluids
  • Flying objects (shattered glass, etc.)
  • The PPE should always match the anticipated hazard. There are several types of personal protective equipment.

MedSafe will complete an on-site assessment of your facility utilizing a survey tool developed by safety and compliance professionals. This assessment focuses on applicable health and safety standards promulgated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Departmet of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Office of the Inspector General (OIG), and other regulatory organizations. Unlike a government inspection, however, our goal is it to improve your facility prior to loss, fine, legal action or other cost or disciplinary action.

Post Assessment 

After completing our initial assessment, MedSafe will provide a formal Report of Recommendations. These recommendations will provide appropriate links to the citation, cite the relevant standards and guidelines, and other regulatory requirements.

One of the most important aspects of a safe working environment, and one of the most difficult for employers to achieve, is annual training of safety regulations (the specific safety training hazards of a an individual workplace). The MedSafe program allows for on-site or internet based online training, both approved for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) by major healthcare organizations.
