Know Everything About OSHA For Dental Offices
What does OSHA mean to the dental office
  • The mission of the Occupational Safety and Health
    Administration is to save lives, prevent
    injuries, and protect the health of Americas
  • As part of the Department of Labor, OSHA and the
    states that operate OSHA-approved state plans
    establish guidelines and standards to promote
    worker safety and health that apply to every
