This course includes new information, including additional requirements recently signed into law regarding dentist and sepsis management. It specifically includes the OSHA update for PPE COVID-19 recommendations. It is not intended to be a COVID-19 “return to work” course. This requirement is separate from the NYS Mandatory Infection Control Re-Licensure requirement of every four years for dentists and hygienists.
OSHA 29CFR Part 1910.1030 States: Personnel Subject to Occupational Exposure Should Receive Infection Control Training on Initial Assignment, When New Tasks or Procedures Affect Their Occupational Exposure, and at a Minimum Annually. This Course helps prepare the dental practitioner to comply with this OSHA mandated standard.
Note: dentist and hygienists can take this course multiple times a year and get credit each time but MUST take it at least annually.
