Identify Risks to Protect Workers
Safety Risk Assessment for Dental Practice or Dental Lab
How do you know if your safety program properly protects workers and meets OSHA compliance?
Conducting a thorough safety assessment is vital to determining your business' risk position and prevention needs regarding worker health & safety. Hiring a dental safety expert familiar with dental procedures and the work environment is the best way to properly evaluate the dental practice or dental lab's safety risk position with a written audit report.
A safety check-up should include review of: Infection Control Practices & Procedures, CDC Guidelines, Analysis of Personal Protective Equipment use including respirators, Bloodborne Pathogen Standard, Written Health & Safety Policies, Ergonomics, Fire & Electrical safety, First Aid, Emergency procedures, Chemical Safety / Hazard Communication, Equipment & Machine Guarding, Walking & Working Surfaces, Injury & Illness Recordkeeping plus more.

...Thank you for the guidance you have provided to us in setting up our Safety system. We just said goodbye to the OSHA inspectors, who came for a safety inspection this morning...They commended us on our facility and Safety program, and wrapped up the inspection in about an hour with no citations or comments...We were sure to make mention of SafeLink Consulting and the excellent training your company provides. The [OSHA inspector] seemed genuinely impressed with everything. James, Dental Lab Safety Coordinator in MN
