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.
