Did you know that a hospital is one of the most hazardous places to work? In 2019, U.S. hospitals recorded 221,400 work-related injuries and illnesses, a rate of 5.5 work-related injuries and illnesses for every 100 full-time employees. This is almost twice the rate for private industry as a whole.

With the additional stresses added to the industry due to the pandemic, OSHA inspectors are targeting healthcare facilities with increased fervor. Just last month, one healthcare facility was fined over $83,000 for respiratory protection violations and lack of hazard assessments alone!

Because of these recent industry stressors, NASP felt it necessary to create a new CSM variant, the CSM-Healthcare. This 40-hour IACET-accredited course provides an in-depth look into the most important topics specific to the healthcare industry:
