Healthcare Industry Safety

These guides and handouts are specific to potential hazards in the healthcare industry, and are appropriate for employers, supervisors, and safety and risk managers to share with employees during training and meetings as a regular part of your overall strategy to stimulate discussion about employee safety and health. Some topics include posters suitable for a common area, such as a break room, locker room or cafeteria. On-going safety training for employees is a vital part of any safety program.
