The Healthcare Practice Specialty (HPS) addresses the occupational safety and health needs of those working in the healthcare industry, including hospitals, extended-care facilities, medical clinics, doctors’/dentists’ offices and related fields, such as psychiatric facilities, substance abuse facilities, paramedic operations and industries providing goods or services to medical facilities. HPS members help identify and promote research in emerging healthcare safety technologies and develop specialized healthcare safety education programs and technical materials.
