OSHA Update for Staff
OSHA has revised its Hazard Communication Standard to align with the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. This requires that all employees who use chemical products of any type in their work read and understand these changes by Dec. 1, 2013. The changes do NOT require any other modifications in your current safety practices. Visit BWHPikeNotes.org to read more and view a slide show about the system. For more information, call Environmental Affairs at 617-264-3010.
Flu Clinic, Vaccine Attestation
BWH Occupational Health Service (OHS) will host an employee flu clinic Dec 2-4, 6:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., in the Tower 2 lobby next to the Shapiro Bridge. Bring your BWH ID badge and wear loose clothing. Employees are required by the Department of Public Health to document in PeopleSoft that they have received a vaccination or declined to be vaccinated. If you receive your vaccine through BWH OHS clinics or the Peer-to-Peer program, this attestation will be automatically entered for you. All other employees must log in to PeopleSoft > HRMS Production > Self Service > Personal Information > Vaccinations to document when and where they received flu vaccine, or that they have declined to be vaccinated.
