OSHA recommends such safety surveys be performed periodically based upon equipment, procedural, personnel or seasonal changes.  Therefore, we suggest that this testing be performed at least on a semiannual basis.

There is increasing emphasis from OSHA, JCAHO, ASHRAE, AAMI and other regulatory agencies regarding workplace exposure to toxic chemicals.  Kem Medical Products has been proudly servicing the healthcare industry since 1980 and would like to be your healthcare facility's partner, helping you to provide a safe work environment.
