OSHA, Infection Control, BBP & PPE (HIPAA not included)

This course is a must for dental employers and employees looking to comply with OSHA guidelines and reduce the risk of injury and disease transmission in their practice. Covering topics such as Hazmat guidelines, exposure control plans, and chemical safety, this informative webinar is designed to help you develop safety strategies and understand potential risks in a dental setting. Information you can implement immediately in your dental practice!

Valuable resource for DAs preparing for the ICE exam.  DA’s would greatly benefit from PLS’s ICE review video series.






Many states require a mandatory infection control course based on a dental setting, once in a license monitoring cycle. The federal government requires an annual OSHA/Infection control class. Check with your state for requirements and CE credit acceptance.
