ADA resources can help with OSHA compliance

The ADA Catalog has two books intended to make compliance needs easier for dentists and their staff.

Occupational Health and Safety Administration Compliance: Training for Dental Professionals and the ADA Regulatory Compliance Manual together make up the Complete OSHA Compliance Kit, a new kit designed to protect the health and safety of a dental team.

With OSHA Compliance: Training for Dental Professionals, dentists receive a 69-page workbook that is accompanied by a training DVD that illustrates OSHA regulations and shows staff how to comply and work safely. The book has a wealth of training information including updated requirements for evaluating needle devices and covers the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard, Hazard Communications Standard and detailed compliance steps. The checklists, quizzes, posters and forms make recordkeeping straightforward and also helps meet annual training requirement by giving staff a chance to earn eight hours continuing education credit.

The Regulatory Compliance Manual is a comprehensive manual and CD-ROM that details the specifics on OSHA regulations and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations. It provides all of the forms and documentation tools on the accompanying CD-ROM and allows edits to be saved in Microsoft Word, making it easy for dentists to create the required custom manual. It includes information from ADA experts on bloodborne pathogens, hazard communication, waste management and other regulatory issues. The manual also includes a subscription to the annual Regulatory Compliance Update Service through 2010.

To order the Complete OSHA Compliance Kit that includes both OSHA: Training for Dental Professionals and the Regulatory Compliance Manual, visit or call 1-800-947-4746 and select Item No. K011. The price is $299.95 for members and $449.95 for nonmembers.
