OSHA/CDC Interact Training System
OSHA & CDC Guidelines: Interact Training System               



The Training System


The OSHA Regulations and CDC Guidelines Interact Training System helps dental healthcare personnel (DHCP) understand the health and safety considerations established by government guidelines and regulations. The workbook is designed to train DHCP to develop safe working habits through practical application. Successful completion of the workbook and post-course assessment qualifies as completion of Step 2 in the OSAP-DALE Foundation Dental Infection Prevention and Control Certificate Program
Each chapter in the course is sequenced to include:
  • explanation and references on a wide array of infection control and related health and safety issues. In each chapter, there are fill-in-the-blank exercises designed to familiarize the participant with locations and procedures specific to the practice and to aid in comprehension (NOTE: each employee participating in the training should have their own workbook);
  • discussion: the practice's Exposure Control Manager and/or employer will discuss and clarify any aspect of the material presented, demonstrate any particular procedures used in the practice and show the location of resources, equipment and materials.
The 10 chapters in the Interact Training System are:
  1. Introduction
  2. Occupational Exposure - why you need to be careful
  3. Personal Protection - barriers for everyone
  4. A Practical Program for Exposure Control - your daily procedures
  5. Instrument Reprocessing - cleaning, packaging, sterilization
  6. Product Selection - cost effective product selection
  7. Written Procedures - policies, procedures and record-keeping
  8. Hazard Communication (HAZCOM) - The Hazard Communication Standard
  9. Medical Waste Disposal - handling, packaging, transport and records
  10. Pulling it All Together - integrated office management
