OSHA obligations that an employer has to his employees are summarized in the OSHA General Duty Clause.
The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act of 1988 (CLIA-88) was passed by Congress with the intent of making clinical laboratory testing site neutral. That is, tests that are performed in a large commercial laboratory, a hospital, a physician’s office, a nursing home, etc. are all subject to the same legal requirements.
If you are a Medical Laboratory, Physician, Ambulance Corps, Home Health Agency, Hospital, Nursing Home, or any other health care provider performing laboratory tests, you are subject to these rules in addition to any local State regulations.
Laboratory Consultation Services, Inc. can assist you in achieving and maintaining compliance with CLIA and State regulatory requirements for clinical laboratory testing.
