Every dentist wants to offer patients the best care while also operating a profitable business. You can do both by signing up for an OSHA seminar. How can this type of training reduce costs and increase the quality of care your staff offers?
It’s Necessary for Compliance
OSHA training is required to operate legally in the state of Michigan. Not complying can cost your practice thousands of dollars. As of January 13th, 2017, the penalties for violations are:
- $12,675 per violation
- $12,675 per day for failure to abate
- $126,749 per violation for willful or repeated incidents
It Reduces the Risk of On-the-Job Accidents
Every profession comes with risks, and dentistry is no different. While you can’t prevent every accident, OSHA training will help reduce potential hazards. Your staff will understand how to operate safely and manage risk while on the job. That means less cost for your practice when it comes to replacing equipment or covering work injury-related expenses.
It Ensures Higher Standards for Patient Care
Patient safety is every dentist’s number one priority. A well-trained staff is necessary to achieve this goal. OSHA training will instruct staff on how to handle risky situations to get the best possible outcome for the people who trust you to take care of their teeth. That also means you are less likely to have to pay out for malpractice lawsuits and related expenses.
