OSHA Safety Classes - Required Each Year
These classes are mandatory to be completed by staff, each and every year. MSDS has made it easy to complete by giving you all the tools you need. Remember, each of these classes start with a citation of up to $7000.00 dollars with a minimum of three years of rosters that must be kept for viewing. That could be $21,000.00 per class and 10 mandatory classes = $210,000.00 dollars. Just for safety classes alone. We have found if you print off one safety class a month and allow the staff the month to view and to sign the roster, then you monthly class time is cut down considerably. Don't forget to have a senerio for the staff to help them relate to each class. Reading alone does not help all staff members. Staff retains material with verbal interaction and hands on.
With the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for working men and women by setting and enforcing standards and by providing training, outreach, education and assistance.

Policies and Procedures - All States
We will not have policies and procedures for each individual states. I will title the sheets in some way to let you know what state they came from. But I also did not want a office from Virginia to miss out on an outstanding policy from Ohio, etc

Safety - Our Concern, Our Life
For those who want to know a little more about what MSDS has to offer, please click the button to the right to request our free newsletter. This is a very short, to the point, newsletter with links to more information stored on our "client only" pages. Our clients do not have the time or staff to research all the different sites that pertain to new regulations for dental offices.
As a client of MSDS, we do the research for you. If new information or regulations from OSHA, your Dental Board, or other government entities, are found, MSDS will email you a brief newsletter. The links will send our clients back to our website where they can read the full article or regulation. Clients that have questions about any new or existing regulations, MSDS will request an emailed answer from the government agency requesting an interpretation of the regulation. These questions, with a link to the answers, are also placed on the newsletter. All questions are sent from MSDS, without the clients name, to ensure confidentiality and to take the risk of an unexpected site inspection.
If you are a current client and this is your first time to our website, please go below and register to receive your login information.
