OSHA comes to the rescue for Hospital Worker Safety
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), hospitals are one of the most hazardous places to work. In 2011, US hospitals recorded 253,700 work-related injuries and illnesses, a rate of 6.8 work-related injuries and illnesses for every 100 full-time employees. This is almost twice the rate for private industry as a whole. This prompted OSHA to create a new website to assist in multiple areas of Worker Safety in Hospitals. Be sure to check it out.
