"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 comprenhensive 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.

Personalized OSHA Manual
The manual is personalized to your facility, and is an essential part of your OSHA program. The manual contains:
- Illness and Injury Prevention Program

- Infection Control Plan
- Job Hazard Assessments.
- Personal Protective Equipment Information

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, and staff training must take place by December, 2013.
Since Safety Data Sheets are not readily available at this time, we will still be sending MSDSs. All MSDS purchases will receive a complimentary cd containing Safety Data Sheets when they become available.
Is that all I need to do?
You also need to include:
- Current Federal and State Compliance Posters.
- Safety signs posted.
- Secondary container labels applied.
- Personal Protective Equipment provided including Safety Glasses, Face Shields, Ear Plugs, and Protective Gloves.
