In addition to navigating the multi-faceted challenges of the COVID-19 response, health care leaders must maintain the culture of safety within their organizations. In the context of increased patient load, health care worker shortages and attrition, and increased administrative burden, there may be temptation to postpone any changes to routine safety programs, like Sharps Injury Prevention. However, when a COVID-19 vaccine is approved and delivered, it may provide unique opportunities for innovation in injury prevention programs. The purpose of this webinar is to provide hospital and healthcare leaders an overview of current Federal COVID-19 vaccination delivery strategies, review OSHA-compliant safety engineered device mechanisms, and highlight opportunities to strengthen safety culture while under pressure.
