The orientation of technicians, outside vendors and contractors in healthcare is not only a safety issue, it is required for accreditation with organizations such as The Joint Commission. Safe Day One™ is an online healthcare facilities orientation & safety training. It’s not enough to be safe one day, we must be Safe Day One™.

In response to ever tightening travel and education budgets, OAHE has partnered with the Kentucky Society of Healthcare Engineers and Owensboro Community and Technical College (OCTC) to provide Safe Day One™ online to OAHE members! This timely offering was initially established in a classroom setting in Kentucky. Now the program has been transferred to the online/distance learning environment to expand the reach of the training to any employee or contract technician providing services in a healthcare environment.



The program covers four primary operational functions: 

  • Module 1 - "Before you Arrive" Pre-construction Risk Assessment
    (Infection Prevention, Fire Safety, Patient Privacy, & Vaccinations)
  • Module 2 - "When you Arrive"
    (Parking, Security, Permits, Emergency Codes, & Teamwork)
  • Module 3 - "While you're Working / Before you Leave"
    (Odors, Vibration & Noise, Compartmentalization, Debris Removal, etc.)
  • Module 4 - "Environmental & OSHA Safety"
    (Confined Space, Ladder Safety, Blood-borne Pathogens & much more)
