$129 a person and earns you 6 contact hours
The orientation of technicians, outside vendors and contractors in healthcare is not only a safety issue, it is required for accreditation with organizations such as The Joint Commission. Safe Day One is an online healthcare facilities orientation & safety training. It’s not enough to be safe one day, we must be safe day one.
In response to ever tightening travel and education budgets, TAHFM has partnered with the Kentucky Society of Healthcare Engineers and Owensboro Community and Technical College (OCTC) to provide Safe Day One online to TAHFM members! This timely offering was initially established in a classroom setting in Kentucky. Now the program has been transferred to the online/distance learning environment to expand the reach of the training to any employee or contract technician providing services in a healthcare environment.
The program covers four primary operational functions:
Module 1 - "Before you Arrive" Pre-construction Risk Assessment
(Infection Prevention, Fire Safety, Patient Privacy, & Vaccinations)
Module 2 - "When you Arrive"
(Parking, Security, Permits, Emergency Codes, & Teamwork)
Module 3 - "While you're Working / Before you Leave"
(Odors, Vibration & Noise, Compartmentalization, Debris Removal, etc.)
Module 4 - "Environmental & OSHA Safety"
(Confined Space, Ladder Safety, Blood-borne Pathogens & much more)
