OSHA Inspections of Outpatient Care Centers Start in Four States

OSHA has started conducting inspections of outpatient care centers in four states — Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama and Florida — in an effort to reduce needlesticks and sharps hazards, according to a report from the ASC Association in its ASCA Government Affairs Update.

 

ASCA, citing OSHA news releases on the inspections, said the inspection program will start April 25 and is scheduled to run until Sept. 30, 2012. The new inspections are not the result of any events or report data, according to the releases.
