The OSHA Guide for Health Care Facilities provides plain-English explanations of all relevant OSHA standards. With sample forms, guidelines and detailed checklists, the Guide advises how to properly prepare, handle and administer medications; minimize the potential hazards of medical equipment; meet OSHA's requirements for the bloodborne pathogens standard and prevent the spread of other infectious threats; and create a more productive, less stressful workplace.

The Guide helps users to perform self-audits designed to identify hazards before OSHA does; assert legal rights during every phase of an OSHA inspection; and set up a useful health and safety committee.
