Protecting Nursing Home Workers: OSHA’s Safety and Health Program Approach:  Protecting Nursing Home Workers: OSHA’s Safety and Health Program Approach Background :  Background The nursing home industry is one of America’s fastest growing industries. Approximately 1.6 million workers are employed at 21,000 work sites. By the year 2005, industry employment will rise to an estimated 2.4 million workers. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Data:  Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Data In 1994, nursing and personal care facilities reported over 221,000 nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses to BLS. Among U.S. industries with 100,000 or more nonfatal injury or illness cases, nursing homes have the third highest rate -- 16.8 injuries and illnesses per 100 full-time workers. Major Sources of Injuries and Illnesses - BLS Data:  Major Sources of Injuries and Illnesses - BLS Data Resident handling Falls Contact with objects and equipment Assaults and violent acts by persons Exposure to harmful substances Nursing Home Jobs with the Most Injuries:  Nursing Home Jobs with the Most Injuries The BLS data showed that nursing aides, orderlies, and attendants accounted for 70% of nursing home injuries that resulted in days away from work. Women employees had more injuries that resulted in lost workdays than did men employees.

Implementation Tools:  Implementation Tools Implementation tools, provided by management, include: budget information personnel assigned responsibility adequate expertise and authority means to hold responsible persons accountable (line accountability) program review procedures Contractor Safety:  Contractor Safety An effective safety and health program protects all personnel on the worksite, including contractors. It is the responsibility of management to address contractor safety. Workplace Analysis:  Workplace Analysis Survey and Hazard Analysis Inspection Hazard Reporting Survey and Hazard Analysis:  Survey and Hazard Analysis An effective, proactive safety and health program will seek to identify and analyze all hazards. In large or complex workplaces, components of such analysis are the comprehensive and analysis of job hazards and changes in conditions. Inspection:  Inspection To identify new or previously missed hazards and failures in hazard controls, an effective safety and health program will include regular site inspections. Hazard Reporting:  Hazard Reporting A reliable hazard reporting system enables employees, without fear of reprisal, to notify management of conditions that appear hazardous and to receive timely and appropriate responses. Accident and Record Analysis:  Accident and Record Analysis Accident Investigation Data Analysis Accident Investigation:  Accident Investigation An effective program will provide for investigation of accidents and “near miss” incidents, so that their causes, and the means for their prevention, are identified. Data Analysis:  Data Analysis An effective program will analyze injury and illness records for indications of sources and locations of hazards, and jobs that experience higher numbers of injuries. By analyzing injury and illness trends over time, patterns with common causes can be identified and prevented. Hazard Prevention and Control:  Hazard Prevention and Control Hazard Control Maintenance Medical Program Hazard Control:  Hazard Control Workforce exposure to all current and potential hazards should be prevented or controlled by using engineering controls, wherever feasible and appropriate, work practices and administrative controls, and personal protective equipment. Maintenance:  Maintenance An effective safety and health program will provide for facility and equipment maintenance, so that hazardous breakdowns are prevented. Medical Program:  Medical Program An effective safety and health program will include a suitable medical program where it is appropriate for the size and nature of the workplace and its hazards. Emergency Response:  Emergency Response Emergency preparedness - There should be appropriate planning, training/drills, and equipment for response to emergencies.

Other tests needed to confirm TB disease TB Occurrence:  TB Occurrence Since 1985, the incidence of TB in the general U.S. population has increased 14% reversing a 30 year downward trend. However, during 1994 and 1995, there has been a decrease in TB cases in the U.S. likely due to increased awareness and efforts in prevention and control of TB. Cases of multi-drug resistant TB have recently been reported in 40 states. Worldwide, 8 million new TB cases and 3 million deaths occur annually. Why Is TB Increasing?:  Why Is TB Increasing? Multiple contributing factors: Homelessness Intravenous drug use Overcrowding in institutional settings HIV infection Reduced resources for TB control and treatment Immigration from high TB prevalence areas Tuberculosis - OSHA Enforcement:  Tuberculosis - OSHA Enforcement On 2/9/96, OSHA issued agency-wide CPL 02-00-106, “Enforcement Procedures and Scheduling for Occupational Exposure to Tuberculosis.” This enforcement directive cancels the enforcement guidelines issued on 10/8/93. Tuberculosis - OSHA Enforcement (Cont’d):  Tuberculosis - OSHA Enforcement (Cont’d) OSHA’s CPL 02-00-106 is based on the Centers for Control and Prevention (CDC) “Guidelines for Preventing the Transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Health-Care Facilities” issued on 10/18/94. OSHA believes these guidelines reflect an industry recognition of the hazard as well as appropriate, widely accepted standards of practice to be followed by employers in carrying out their responsibilities under the OSH Act. Workplace Identified by CDC with High Incidences of TB:  Workplace Identified by CDC with High Incidences of TB Health Care Settings Correctional Institutions Homeless Shelters Long-term Care Facilities for the Elderly Drug Treatment Centers Highlights of CDC Guidelines and OSHA Requirements:  Highlights of CDC Guidelines and OSHA Requirements Determine the risk of exposure Early diagnosis, isolation, treatment Requirements for isolation Training of workers Skin testing Respirators - OSHA standard 1910.134 Other applicable standards - recordkeeping, employee access to records, accident prevention signs Workplace Violence:  Workplace Violence Any physical assault, threatening behavior, or verbal abuse occurring in the workplace. The workplace may be any location either permanent or temporary where an employee performs any work-related duty. Acts of Aggression Which May Indicate Risk:  Acts of Aggression Which May Indicate Risk Disorderly conduct Verbal threats to inflict bodily harm Fascination with guns or other weapons Obscene phone calls Intimidating presence Harassment of any nature Types of Workplace Violence Incidents:  Types of Workplace Violence Incidents Based upon the relationship between the assailant/worker/workplace, violent incidents can be divided into categories: violence by strangers violence by customers/clients/patients violence by co-workers violence by personal relationship Types of Workplace Violence Incidents (Cont’d):  Types of Workplace Violence Incidents (Cont’d) Homicides Leading cause of job-related deaths for women, second leading cause for men Claimed the lives of 1,071 lives in 1994 (BLS data) Approximately 3 workers died each day under violent circumstances in 1994 Nonfatal Assaults Between 1987-1992, one million persons were annually assaulted at work Establishments Affected by Workplace Violence:  Establishments Affected by Workplace Violence According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the highest number of homicides occur in night retail establishments. The highest number of nonfatal assaults occur in the health care and social service sectors. Health Care Establishments:  Health Care Establishments Nonfatal assaults were primarily by patients/residents on nursing staff in health care institutions. According to one study (Goodman et al., 1994), between 1980-1990, 106 violence related deaths occurred among health care workers. Nursing Homes:  Nursing Homes BLS 1994 data showed more than 4900 assaults and violent acts against employees in nursing homes. Nursing aides and orderlies accounted for more than 50% of the assault victims. Most of the violent acts involved hitting, kicking, and beatings. Examples of Why Health Care Workers are at Risk Of Work-Related Assaults:  Examples of Why Health Care Workers are at Risk Of Work-Related Assaults Low level staffing level during times of increased activity; Isolated work with patients/residents during examinations or treatment; and Lack of training of staff in recognizing and managing escalating hostile and assaulting behavior. OSHA Guidelines - Overview:  OSHA Guidelines - Overview Because of the high incidence of workplace violence, OSHA developed in 1996 a set of voluntary guidelines to prevent workplace violence. The guidelines cover a broad spectrum of workers (nearly 8 million) in psychiatric facilities, hospital emergency departments, drug treatment centers, community care and mental health facilities, pharmacies and long-term care facilities. Violence Prevention Program Elements:  Violence Prevention Program Elements Management Commitment and Employee Involvement Worksite Analysis Hazard Preventing and Control Training and Education Recordkeeping and Evaluation of Program Appendices:  Appendices SHARP Staff Assault Study Workplace Violence Checklist Assaulted and/or Battered Employee Policy Violence Incident Report Forms Sources of OSHA Assistance Suggested Readings Availability of Guidelines:  Availability of Guidelines The OSHA “Guidelines for Preventing Workplace Violence for Health Care and Social Service Workers” are available on the Internet at: http://www.osha.gov General Duty Clause:  General Duty Clause Section 5(a)(1) of the OSH Act requires that “Each employer shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.” General Duty Clause (Cont’d):  General Duty Clause (Cont’d) The general duty clause is used only where there is no OSHA standard that applies to the particular hazard involved. Examples of workplace hazards to which the general duty clause may apply include occupational exposure to TB and workplace violence. General Duty Clause (Cont’d):  General Duty Clause (Cont’d) Four elements are required for issuing general duty clause violations: The employer failed to keep the workplace free of a hazard to which employees of that employer were exposed The hazard was recognized The hazard was causing or was likely to cause death or serious physical harm There was a feasible and useful method to correct the hazard
