OSHA publishes many reports which often include recommended guidelines designed to increase workplace safety. While these recommendations aren’t official OSHA “regulations”, they are helpful suggestions for healthcare organizations of all kinds.
The following recommendations have previously been shared by The Joint Commission, showing just how important the healthcare industry considers them to be.

The easiest way to get your facility in line with the OSHA guidelines mentioned above is to implement a visitor management system at your site.
“Visitor management” refers to the process of registering and monitoring guests at your site. Visitor management solutions range from simple sign-in books left at an unattended front desk (not recommended) to comprehensive software systems that require a visitor to scan a driver’s license or ID card for entry.
Visitor management is a crucial part of almost every business where there is confidential data, but is of extraordinary relevance and importance in the healthcare market. A successful visitor management program helps increase security across your site, from employees down to guests.
