Workplace Safety for the Healthcare Industry

Every day, millions of healthcare workers face risks that could seriously impact their safety and wellbeing, such as being exposed to chemicals, toxic substances and infectious diseases, muscle strains and sprains, workplace violence, fatigue, stress and more.

The CDC reports that healthcare employees face more hazards than those in any other industry. Implementing loss control best practices cannot only help with improving patient safety, but can also reduce the injuries and illnesses the medical staff may experience.
