Whether you're trying to improve an existing OSHA program or just starting from scratch, Veterinary OSHA Assistant can help you achieve OSHA compliance.
The Personalized OSHA Manual and 4 Part Training Program address OSHA concerns that are specific to veterinary facilities.
Material Safety Data Sheets for over 450 products commonly found in veterinary facilities and the Hazardous Chemical Master List are essential for OSHA compliance.
"I have been looking for an OSHA program that is specific for the veterinary industry and I have
found it with Vet OSHA Assistant! The material that was sent was inclusive to everything we needed
to implement our OSHA program but not so overwhelming that the task seemed daunting!
Karen was attentive to my questions and the materials came in a timely manner and looking extremely professional! I would recommend this program to any veterinary hospital looking to implement or change their OSHA program."
Sarah Gelinas, Hospital Manager
OSHA training for your staff will be simplified with this self-paced training program in Power Point format.
Each section of the training ends with a quiz, and copies are included for your employees to fill out as proof of training.
OSHA Overview, Hazard Communication, Hazardous Chemicals, Safety Data Sheets, and GHS TRAINING.
Infection Control and Zoonotic Diseases.
Safety Information from A (Anesthesia) to Z (Zoonotic Diseases).
Emergency Action Plan and Workplace Violence Prevention.
This Training Program complements the Personalized OSHA Manual, and is also available as printed slide copies in a binder.
"We operate a busy 24/7 hospital and staff training can always be a challenge.
Vet OSHA Assistant allowed us to train our staff without long staff meetings.
It is a comprehensive program that is tailored for individual learning. Our staff did the review and test during their shift, thus allowing us to continue to keep the hospital running.
I would highly recommend this program to all animal hospitals, it is very user friendly and Karen has been great with follow up to be sure everything is going smoothly."

Material Safety Data Sheets
Material Safety Data Sheets and a Hazardous Chemical Master List are essential for OSHA compliance. This cd contains 450+ Material Safety Data Sheets for products commonly used in veterinary facilites.
The cd is accompanied by a binder with the Hazardous Chemical Master List. If a product doesn't contain a Hazardous Chemical it will be noted as such, which lets your employees know the product has been addressed.
OSHA regulations require that Material Safety Data Sheets correspond to all of the products your employees are exposed to, so if there are any products you use that are missing I will add them.
In March 2012, OSHA passed a final ruling regarding adoption of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS). Safety Data Sheets will replace Material Safety Data Sheets by June of 2015, and staff training should take place by December, 2013.
Since Safety Data Sheets are not readily available at this time, we will still be sending mainly MSDSs. All MSDS purchases will receive a complimentary cd containing Safety Data Sheets when they become available.
