What is OSHA Dental Office Compliance?
OSHA regulations for dental offices include many of the same regulations for medical offices without a dental component. For example, healthcare providers, regardless of whether they are dentists, must comply with the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard, and the Personal Protective Equipment Standard. An OSHA regulation that specifically implicates dental offices, labs, and dental work, is the OSHA Beryllium Standard. OSHA dental office compliance with this standard is discussed below.
