Common hazards in the healthcare industry:

Healthcare workers face many hazards on the job including exposure to hazardous chemicals and drugs, and physical violence.

Employers must evaluate the potential an employee has for exposure to these hazards. Employers must ensure they’ve put an effective control plan in place.

Nurses confront potential hazards like exposure to infectious diseases and toxic substances, back injuries, radiation exposure and work-related stress. Porters may be exposed to cleaners and disinfectants, infectious diseases, heavy lifting and sharp objects. Maintenance workers may confront electrical, working at heights, asbestos, solvent and confined space hazards.

Healthcare hazards can generally be divided into four primary categories:

Hazardous agents

This can include biological agents, chemical agents, disinfectants and sterilants, antibiotics, waste anesthetic gases and hazardous waste.

These agents can be found almost anywhere within healthcare facilities. Examples include the operating room, physical plant, laundry, food services, labs, radiology and office areas.

Ergonomic hazards

This can include lifting, repetitive motion, standing or sitting for long periods of time and eye strain. Overexertion (including lifting) is the number one cause of injury and illness for health services.

Physical hazards

This can include exposures to toxic, reactive, corrosive or flammable compressed gases and chemicals, extreme temperatures that may cause burns or heat stress, mechanical hazards that may cause cuts, punctures or abrasions, electrical hazards, radiation, noise, dust, violence and slips and falls.

Psychological hazards

These are related to discrimination, technological changes, malfunctioning equipment, tight work schedules, downsizing, overwork, understaffing, paperwork, increased facility size and bureaucracy, violence, dependent and demanding patients and patient deaths.

All of these factors contribute to stress, fatigue, anger and frustration.

Workers are most likely to encounter severe stress in intensive care units, burn units, emergency rooms and operating rooms.
