OSHA Offers Safe Patient Handling Brochure-For Free

Tom Burke

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OHSA) published a free brochure on the elements of a successful safe patient handling program. It includes five common myths and realities about the topic including that staff are more accepting if they are familiar with mechanical lifts. OHSA tries to dispel the notion that mechanical lifting takes more time to accomplish than manual lifts. The pamphlet also describes a six-step process for having a successful safe patient handling program.

Check it out here. To view the entire OHSA library, go here.
