Q: I heard that OSHA doesn’t have the manpower to inspect dental offices, is this true?
A: NO! – This is one of the biggest OSHA myth among the Dental Profession, OSHA has plenty of manpower for inspections and keep this in mind, only one OSHA inspector needs to come through the doors of your office and if your office is not compliant which by the way 9 out of 10 dental offices are not, manpower shortage isn’t the issue anymore. Another thing, with fines in the thousands of dollars range I would make sure my office is compliant and not just with OSHA requirements either. The day that dentists must stop taking the “cheap” route is here – protect your patients and employees and you will protect your assets, it’s a no-brainer!
