Last week I had the pleasure of speaking to Kathy Nahrwold, President of Absolute OSHA Consulting, a highly experienced OSHA consultant.We continue to hear many concerns from our clients and across industry in regard to infection control. As a result, we wanted to bring you important thought leadership on the matter.Here is a summary of my conversation with Kathy.
There are not going to be a lot of changes right away. Likely for two reasons:
At present, the CDC has not made any changes. The current CDC alert level is 3 – avoid non-essential travel and the recommendation to use Level 3 masks for oral health professionals remains.
Interim CDC policies still in place for treating emergency patients.
That said, Kathy urges all to be prepared. It’s time to take OSHA and infection control more seriously if you haven’t previously.
I hope this helps answer some of your questions. If you have additional questions, please reach out to Kathy directly ((260) 705-6257 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit her website.
