UB Dental Teleconference - OSHA Update: Infection Control & CDC GuidelinesNovember 01, 2017

Karen is a high energy speaker specializing in Infection Prevention, Instrument Processing, Sterilization, and OSHA in a humorous, engaging format. Her passion for safety is infectious and audiences regularly comment they didn’t realize OSHA training could be so fun! Karen excels at coaching dental teams to achieve compliance within their organization utilizing gap analysis and lean processes.

Review BBP standard elements to ensure your office is in compliance with OSHA

Review CDC Infection Control guidelines including "common vs best practices" specifically for dental professionals

Fulfill DANB Infection Control CDE requirements for certified dental assistants, new as of 2017

“Which contact time do we follow for our disinfectant –there are three times listed?”

“How do I get our students to comply with PPE?”

“Do I have to wear my gloves? My hands get sweaty!”

I could fill tomes with the questions I’ve received and the scenarios I’ve encountered as a consultant − like the dental office that just sprays their hygiene instruments with disinfectant instead of sterilizing between patients, or the team member that is “issued” only three disinfecting wipes per day by the office manager! I’m sure together we could amass enough stories to fill encyclopedias. In an industry where the terms “safety and compliance” are common vernacular, we all want to be on top of our game and ensure we are communicating the latest supported information to those who rely on us to do so.
