On January 1, 2015, all healthcare providers and workers will have new rules to follow to help protect them from occupational exposure to Hazardous Drugs. The 2011 Legislature passed ESSB 5594, requiring the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) to set requirements to protect workers who handle chemotherapy and other hazardous drugs. The bill required L&I to adopt rules that are consistent with but do not exceed provisions in the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s (NIOSH) Alert on preventing occupational exposures to antineoplastic and other hazardous drugs in health care settings. The NIOSH drug list is quite broad and includes many non-antineoplastic medications including hormones, warfarin, mental health medications. Are you prepared?
