ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Philip Seibert is Certified Veterinary Technician concentrating as a full-time practice consultant to the profession, and is Director of the VIN OSHA Center. Phil's extensive clinical and managerial background enabled him to become the first veterinary technician to evaluate over 1000 veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada for the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Phil has taken the lead in "deciphering" the regulatory agency rules affecting the veterinary profession and continuously offers advice to veterinary technicians, hospital managers and practice owners on compliance with the regulations. Phil is the founder and Managing Editor of the profession's only safety-specific newsletter, The Veterinary Safety & Health Digest. He is the author of many articles dealing with veterinary hospital administration which have appeared in national publications such as Journal of the AVMA, AAHA Trends, Veterinary Forum and the Practice Journals.
The Complete Veterinary Practice Regulatory Compliance Manual is a comprehensive reference tool for the practice administrator. Covering not only OSHA standards, but a complete range of regulatory issues, including controlled substances and pharmacy operations, labor and employment issues, and even ADA compliance. In addition, you'll also receive a copy of "Safety Issues for the Veterinary Practice Staff". This self-paced workbook is ideal for training new and existing members of the practice team on the issues important to them and to OSHA! Both books are included in the registration fee for the course.
