New ADA Hazard Assessment Guide

As a companion to the Return to Work Interim Guidance Toolkit, ADA has developed the COVID-19 Hazard Assessment Guide and Checklist.
Both the WSDA and ADA continue to urge OSHA and DOSH to update their directives based on the CDC’s new Guidance for Dental Settings. We will continue to share updates as they become available.

ADA Releases Hazard Assessment Guide and Checklist

As a companion to the Return to Work Interim Guidance Toolkit, ADA has developed the COVID-19 Hazard Assessment Guide and Checklist (login required), designed to help you evaluate COVID-19 related hazards to which dental employees may be exposed.


Exclusively available to ADA members, the guide is modeled after OSHA’s Hazard Identification and Assessment, but created specifically with COVID-19 and the dental practice in mind.

Dentists will be able to gain information on risk factors such as local disease transmission rates, patient- and treatment-specific issues, and facility considerations. A supplemental checklist to the guide will help you evaluate hazard levels in your practice during a specific point in time.

Be sure to download these new materials, then review and discuss them with your staff.
