Pre-Conference* | September 8 | 8:00 AM 

Join us for our pre-conference session

Cal/OSHA and Ambulatory Surgery Providers

This meeting begins Wednesday, September 8th at 8:30 AM.

2020 required ASCs to further evaluate the safety of their environment for the ASC patient and their staff. ASCs faced new challenges as they implemented respiratory protection plans, pandemic policies and confronted the effects of wildfires and prevalent smoke. As we move through the pandemic, providing a safe environment for employees and patients is of the utmost importance. ASCs have a responsibility to follow Cal/OSHA guidelines to protect health care workers from injury and illness in the workplace. This highly interactive seminar will review several timely Cal/OSHA topics and their applicability as well as operational methods of compliance that attendees can immediately implement.

*Pre-conference session requires a separate fee.
