After conducting the first round of beta tests, it is clear we are on the right track. There is absolutely a need for attention to OSHA standards in the dental community. Unfortunately, this is an area of liability that has brought about little concern in the past and is now becoming more and more a hot item amongst the dental community as legislators seek to raise fines for non-compliance. There is on average, 5 defects at any given point in time in a dental practice. Of the beta tests completed thus far in our venture, this number doesn't even compare. We have found tremendous levels of liability that will bring substantial fines if not corrected. We are supporting these practices in correcting their existing deficiencies and implementing workable solutions to prevent them in the future. My question to you is.....if an OSHA inspector were to walk into your practice today.....are you compliant?
