Wesco Healthcare Solutions help healthcare providers ensure compliance to regulatory standards, which in turn protects their certifications, accreditations, and employee safety. Healthcare organizations face major challenges in keeping track of thousands of chemicals in use, maintaining Safety Data Sheet (SDS) libraries for these chemicals, and providing employee safety and training. All these factors are required in order to maintain accreditation and compliance related GHS (Globally Harmonized System of Classification) incorporated by OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration), Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) European regulation, Joint Commission for Accreditation of Healthcare Organization (JCAHO), and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) standards.
Regulatory standards often present complex and competing requirements that uniquely affect healthcare providers. For example, healthcare providers are required to include Hazardous and Cytotoxic Drugs and information on pharmaceutical drugs. However, with the introduction of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling (GHS), it is no longer required of manufacturers to provide information, while healthcare providers are still under the requirement. Wesco Healthcare Solutions help close this gap by including HCS data in Safety Data Sheets for our clients.
Wesco Healthcare Solutions is at the forefront, keeping track of regulatory changes that affect our customers in order to protect their ability to focus on providing quality care.
Our proprietary software MAXCOM provides a robust set of features to address domestic and international health and safety standards. Healthcare providers are required to provide a Hazard Communication Management Plan under OSHA standards for Hazard Communication and Environment of Care (EOC) standards. Knowing where to start—or how to improve a current plan—can pose a challenge.
With online SDS Libraries, easy-to-understand Safe-Use Guides, GHS training modules, safe storage information, and more, we provide the features clients need to provide for their employees. Each program is customizable, from the enterprise level organization to facility-specific needs.
Let Wesco Healthcare Solutions equip you with the tools you need to keep your employees safe and your organization compliant to health and safety standards.
