OSHA Compliance for the Dental Laboratory

Each year most businesses inspected by OSHA fail to meet the required standards.  Dental laboratories can be reported anonymously by an employee to OSHA, by various others such as business neighbors, or referrals which could be another regulatory agency. Even the best policies and procedures (protocols) need to be assessed annually to ensure your laboratory is compliant.

Gary is President and Senior Compliance Advisor for SafeLink Consulting, Inc. He guides businesses in implementing employee health and safety programs and quality systems. Gary is an Authorized Trainer under OSHA’s Outreach Program, a Certified Quality Auditor, authorized DAMAS consultant, and a Certified Dental Technician.
