OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH SAFETY NETWORK (OHSN)
What is the Occupational Health Safety Network?
The Occupational Health Safety Network (OHSN) is a free, innovative, web-based injury and exposure monitoring system created for healthcare facilities. This secure system enables participating facilities to analyze worker injury and exposure data that they already collect. Trends for traumatic injury and hazardous exposures are visualized using the OHSN chart function. OHSN allows facilities to track their work-related injuries and exposures over time.
OHSN now monitors five common, high risk, preventable injury and exposure events among healthcare workers:
Sharps Injuries (NEW!)
Blood and Body Fluid Exposures (NEW!)
Slips, Trips, and Falls
Patient Handling Injuries
