You are the Director of Health Information Management. You are required to do a safety review of your department which includes the equipment used and the office furniture.
Identify potential hazards in the department and develop a schedule when you will check on the performance of the equipment (scanners, fax machines, computer printers, etc.) to make sure these are being cleaned and checked on a regular basis. Include fire extinguishers, fire alarms, smoke detectors as well as locks on doors.
Identify that the furniture used is not ergonomically correct and you will need to recommend work stations and chairs that will be correct.
Hint: Include off-site or remote workers in this plan. Put your information in a report format that will be sent to the Safety Committee as an annual review for Health Information Management and serve as a Safety Plan for HIM.
