Dan Scungio, MT(ASCP), SLS

Lab safety is governed by an alphabet soup of agencies, each with regulations and guidelines that affect compliance. Tracking down regulatory information isn’t always as easy as it should be, and neither is navigating cumbersome websites. Stop spending time searching for what you need and get the electronic toolkit that has it all in one place.

The Lab Safety Compliance Crosswalk lets hospital lab safety professionals quickly reference and compare lab safety regulations from OSHA and the College of American Pathologists (CAP) as well as other regulatory bodies to ensure their lab’s compliance.

This electronic toolkit provides:

  • An overview of the major agencies that issue regulations, including OSHA and CAP 
  • A guide to navigating regulatory websites and locating the specific information you need 
  • A comprehensive reference to rules and guidelines from the myriad of regulatory agencies, such as OSHA, CAP, The Joint Commission, EPA, and CDC
