Safety in a healthcare setting is unique when compared to other industries. While workers in other fields may have occasional contact with customers, they normally do not interfere with their safety. This isn't the case in the healthcare industry. In healthcare, the customer can often be the hazard.

If you're a safety professional who operates in a healthcare setting, this is one Virtual Symposium you won't want to miss!

Join us for this symposium and learn:

  • Methods for reducing exposures to hazardous drugs.
  • Ways to reduce injuries associated with patient handling.
  • Methods for reducing exposure to infectious disease.
  • Strategies for preventing violence in the workplace.
  • How to prepare and respond to emergency situations unique to the healthcare environment.
  • Best practices around the use of personal protective equipment unique to the healthcare setting.
