Compliance Training for Your Healthcare Facility. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) requires that healthcare facilities supply compliance training to all their staff. There are specific guidelines and information covered depending upon the type of exposure and work involved by the staff member. The training is designed to make employees aware of various hazards, take steps to avoid dangers, and actions to take in case of exposure to potentially hazardous medical situations. Training occurs prior to hiring and is again required on an annual basis or when the duties of the staff member change.
