WSDA Introduces Accident Prevention Plan Template
WSDA has partnered with the Department of Labor and Industries’ Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) to create an Accident Prevention Program (APP) template tailored to the dental office. Every dental office must have a written APP designed to help prevent accidents, illnesses and injuries within the workplace. This APP template will help your office develop the written plan that is required under WAC 296-823-110. WSDA has made drafting an APP as simple as possible; your office simply needs to customize the sections highlighted in yellow to reflect the operations of your practice. Each APP must include all your safety policies, be updated annually and be adapted to correspond with procedural and technological changes as well as new hazards that may impact the safety of staff and patient safety within the dental office. If you have any questions about this template or any of the specific rules that it contains, please contact WSDA at 800-448-3368 or email Mike Walsh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
