The Dental Compliance Institute Publishes Free Guide “How to Survive a Surprise OSHA Audit”


The Dental Compliance Institute (DCI), a leading provider of training and certification programs designed to help dental professionals achieve full compliance of HIPAA and OSHA regulations and to also learn the essentials of patient risk management, recently published “How to Survive a Surprise OSHA Audit,” the first in a planned series of “survival guides” for OSHA, HIPAA, and dental risk management.

Dentistry has changed during the past year, and this includes OSHA regulations. According to DCI founder, Linda Harvey, RDH,  “All it takes is for an unhappy employee or patient to file an anonymous report, and you may receive a surprise visit from an OSHA inspector. To make matters worse, you may be fined as much as $13,000 a day per violation for non-compliance.”

Rather than being taken by surprise, Harvey suggests that dental professionals download the free guide, “How to Survive a Surprise OSHA Audit,” at “This is the first of a series,” explains Harvey. “Over the next several months, we will be publishing additional “survival guides” on HIPAA compliance and risk management.”
