General Employer Responsibilities

Nurse in Imaging Room

To reduce the risk of injury and illness, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) imposes a number of general requirements upon health care employers. OSHA generally requires that health care employers take the following measures (among other things):

  • Develop a written Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure Control Plan and provide training to exposed employees.
  • Prepare and implement a written Hazard Communication Program to comply with OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard, which is designed to ensure employers and employees know about hazardous workplace chemicals and how to protect themselves.
