The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is soliciting comments on strategies being used to mitigate the risk of occupationally-acquired infectious diseases in health care settings (e.g., hospitals, outpatient clinics, and laboratories that handle potentially infectious biological materials). Specifically, OSHA seeks data on: the facilities and the tasks potentially exposing workers to this risk; successful employee infection control programs; control methodologies being utilized; medical surveillance programs; and training. OSHA will use such information to determine whether it should take action to further limit the spread of occupationally-acquired infectious diseases in these types of settings. OSHA will accept comments until August 4, 2010.
