IACP’s Collaboration with the Tennessee Pharmacists Research and Education Foundation Presents:
2013 Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) Update - Live Training Webinar
Are you a pharmacist providing immunizations or CLIA-waived testing services or a pharmacy technician assisting in these services? If you are at any risk for exposure to bloodborne pathogens, you are required to have live OSHA training every year.
OSHA’s fines for non-compliance can exceed $90,000.
You can comply with OSHA’s training requirements for less than $70.
(You do the math.)
Even if you participate in an OSHA training program every year, you are not in compliance with OSHA’s requirements if the training doesn’t have a LIVE component. In response to requests from pharmacists, the Tennessee Pharmacists Research and Education Foundation (TPREF) is offering an ACPE-accredited OSHA training webinar that meets all of OSHA’s training requirements. The 2013 OSHA Update can protect you and your pharmacy practice site against potentially devastating OSHA fines—and your pharmacy site can continue to protect the public against potentially devastating disease.
The webinar program is presented online by Stephan Foster, PharmD, FAPhA, FNAP. Dr. Foster is a retired Captain in the U.S. Public Health Service and is on faculty at the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy. He is on the Speakers’ Bureau for Merck and Roche and is a consultant for GSK and Sanofi-Pasteur.
