COVID-19 has exposed weak links in dental safety. New standards of practice must manage droplet and airborne pathogens efficiently and reliably. This course reviews and updates the OSHA-required training topics for ordinary and extraordinary risks. General safety issues such as physical and chemical risks, infectious disease transmission and control, and written safety plans are discussed. Attendees learn ways improve the effectiveness of Standard Precautions including dental waterline management, while adjusting for higher risks such as aerosol transmitted diseases (ATD’s) with a respiratory protection program.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the required components of a safety program and identify important resources and options
  • Recognize and manage bloodborne, contact, droplet and airborne diseases, including COVID-19
  • Recognize and manage workplace hazards and disease exposures with optimal effectiveness
