OSHA in Personal Care Setting (4 hours) 

PCH facilities serve disabled and elderly persons who need around-the-clock medical care and cannot live safely on their own. The services provided by PCH facilities, such as onsite nursing care, vary depending upon the state laws where the facilities are located and the types of services a particular facility is able to provide. Regardless of these variations, all assisted living facilities must comply with certain requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to abate workplace hazards and protect the safety of healthcare workers. This course will discuss OSHA standards such as General Industry Requirements, Emergency Action Plan, Workplace Hazards, Nursing Services, and OSHA standards related to medical activities.
