Webinar

Safety & Health Webinar Series

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and its state partners conducted almost 2,000 inspections of healthcare facilities in the past year. OSHA considers healthcare a priority because its statistics show that the healthcare industry has one of the highest rates of work-related injuries and illnesses. Is your healthcare facility ready for the next OSHA inspection?
