Office Checklist: Stay Compliant with OSHA, HIPAA, etc.

Review your OSHA and HIPAA manuals. Have your staff review them and sign off that the review has oc­curred. In some cases, you must update the manual to comply with the law and physical changes in your office. Your employees must be made aware of such changes.

Inspect your office for the eye wash station. Is your office signage up to date? Exit signs in place? Lighting all working? Are the locks on your files working? Do you know where the keys are? Has your staff been vaccinated for the flu? Have they been tested for COVID-19? The same question goes for you, the reader.

Have you ordered your annual updates for your computer or electronic medical record software? Strongly consider having all users of the computer network change their passwords!
