Course Summaries:
Annual OSHA Refresher Training – All Bases Covered!
This all-inclusive Cal/OSHA training course provides up-to-date, relevant, regulatory compliance guidelines and information to inspire DHCPs to create a safer work environment at the office. OSHA requires training for DHCPs (DDS, DMD, RDH, RDHEF, RDA, RDAEF, DA), who have occupational risks to contracting Bloodborne pathogens and/or work with hazardous chemicals or chemical waste. Because of the hazards inherent in the practice of dentistry, Cal/OSHA has specific training topics to protect DHCPs and to create a safer work environment. Safe work environments must be supported by an elevated management safety culture within the office, which centers around an effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program, required of all employers in California (CCR Title 8, Sec 3203)

Learn how to get a safety plan tailored to your office using CDA’s Regulatory Compliance Manual and the task of completing it made simple. Additional training topics combine up-to-date information on Bloodborne Pathogens, including info on ATDs (Title 8, Sec. 5193), Hazard Communications (Title 8, Sec. 5194) and other safety topics pertinent to dentistry. This comprehensive course is designed to complete “Refresher Training” requirements set forth by Cal/OSHA for employees that work in an environment with occupational risks for Bloodborne pathogens or hazardous chemicals.
