Question: We are an optometry office. What should we have on file in case of an OSHA audit?
 

Answer: Based on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) healthcare and general industry rules, medical offices should have a compliant general industry safety plan. OSHA offers a compliance tool for the healthcare industry that will help ensure you have the right documents on file for general record keeping requirements as well as for any audit situation. OSHA also provides specific guidance for medical and dental offices.
