DE4-4-Chart-Image-BOTH72Dental Professionals’ Guide to Safety & Hygiene 2014/15 – Released

Pro-Visual Publishing is excited to announce the new edition of the Dental Professionals Guide to Safety

& Hygiene 2014/15. This guide stresses the importance of keeping skills and knowledge up-to-date in the dental industry.

Prominent topics of this year’s guide include aspects of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) such as relevant training and obligations, and ensuring that dental professionals meet the required standards needed in order to create a professional and productive workplace. This section focuses on the patients’ interests and safety, confidentiality, maintaining customer loyalty, collaborating effectively with colleagues, and working within their professional knowledge and skills to contribute towards a safer workplace.

Topics of infection control and ergonomics are also concentrated on in this year’s guide. Employers and dental health workers should always be aware of infections that may arise, and the steps or prevention methods taken in order to eliminate the risk of bacteria spreading. These steps involve wearing appropriate personal protective clothing when cleaning instruments or attending to a patient. This topic also highlights the correct procedures when in the workplace so no harm can come to either the patient or dental professional. Furthermore, the guide elaborates on suggested ergonomic control measures for dental practices to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders. Exercise plays a vital role in this profession as it assists in keeping all muscle groups strong, especially when dentists are in one position for a long period of time. Moreover, there is an outline of all the relevant instruments and positioning of furniture and equipment to install in the workplace to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders. “I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Dental Professionals Guide to Safety & Hygiene 2014/15. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge”, – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
