The Certificate in Healthcare Safety is designed for the professional in the healthcare environment who is responsible for the safety of patients, employees, and visitors. A Certificate in Healthcare Safety will provide a solid foundation to assist one in facilitating institutional compliance with OSHA regulations and meeting The Joint Commission (TJC) standards as they relate to the environment of care.

Course content will specifically address conducting risk assessments, the Hospital Incident Command System (HICS), NFPA’s Life Safety Code®, and The Joint Commission’s Statement of Conditions™.
