We are revamping our presentation  in the short time we are allotted in new employee orientation to discuss safety, and engendering a culture of safety of health in the workplace.
Could you just take a sec to very briefly answer some basic questions...

  1.  How much time do you get? 20 min
  2.  How do you structure it and set the tone....for example...do you present individuals' stories?  Do you focus on the nuts-and-bolts of how to report and injury, seek care, etc?  Do you discuss the relationship between employee safety and patient safety?  Do you have different modules for employees who are involved in direct patient care, who work in healthcare facilities but not in direct patient care, and those who work in generic administrative and business functions not specifically related to healthcare.

We have a Power point that covers :
Ergonomics/Back Safety/Safe patient handling
Workplace Safety/Injury Management and Prevention
How to report
Exposure to Blood/Body Fluids
Blood borne diseases
Personal Protective Equipment
Exposure to Infectious Diseases
Employee illness
Annual Compliance
Vaccines offered in Occupational Health
We also tell stories during these slides

In the interest of your valuable time, feel free to respond in sentence fragments...so I can get a flavor of what people are doing...it'll help us get started.
