The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), a US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention agency, extended through March 31 an online survey of private dental practices. The survey evaluates the use of Exposure Control Plans to prevent occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens in private dental practices. The survey also gathers information on barriers to actively using an Exposure Control Plan so that better strategies can be developed for the profession.
OSAP requests that private dental practices complete the brief anonymous online survey. Click here to access the survey. Please complete only one survey per office.
