Format: Home study
Credits: 4 hours
This course lists over 50 items and reviews all the requirements necessary to help make your office OSHA complaint. Students will receive a “check list” of requirements and updates that need to be made to your office’s infection control training manual to meet current OSHA standards. You will also need (purchased separately) an updated infection control training manual which will help you meet those requirements. Note: If you currently have a Infection Control Manual you can update it yourself.
Note: an Infection Control Manual is required by OSHA.
Additionally, the program will cover the current CDC guidelines, as required by the NJ State Board of Dentistry. Copies of the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard and the Hazardous Communications Standard are included.
This course is an opportunity for an individual to meet the annual training and updating session requirements set by OSHA.
While it provides the annual training and updating requirement set by OSHA, it may also be taken simply for the CDE credits (if for example you are not currently employed at an office). In other words, you’ll meet the OSHA requirement and earn 4 clinical CDE hours even if you’re only after one or the other.
This course is not the same as our Infection Control course designed to help people work towards obtaining a CDA certificate, which can also be taken for 20 clinical CDE hours.
