The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released a new Health Care Industry Quick Start module for its Compliance Assistance Quick Start, the agency's web-based tool that introduces employers and employees, especially those at small businesses, to the free compliance assistance resources on OSHA's web site.

The new Health Care Industry Quick Start module is directed primarily at small employers in the health care field. The module is designed to help users find free resources on the OSHA web site related to the health care industry.

The module is made up of eight steps, including OSHA requirements that apply to many healthcare employers; developing a comprehensive safety and health program; training employees; and recordkeeping, reporting and posting requirements.

Compliance Assistance Quick Start provides step-by-step guidance on how to identify OSHA requirements and guidance materials that may apply to specific workplaces. In addition to the new Health Care module, Quick Start includes modules for General Industry, Construction, and Hispanic Outreach.
