What to expect when we visit: Your TMC consultant will go through your facility and do a thorough facility audit with an electronic report, go over the Compliance manual, and provide on-site training. 

For our OSHA clients, we provide you with a complimentary spill kit, secondary labels, and meet with your Safety Officer and review their duties.

For HIPAA clients, your facility audit will identify any privacy and security concerns, we’ll provide you with a risk analysis report for your facility, and we’ll meet with your Privacy/Security Officer to review their duties. 

Whether you choose us for OSHA, HIPAA, or both, we will work with you to achieve compliance to create a long-lasting relationship rather than just providing a how-to guide leaving you to do all the work. Our goal is to be your primary resource for HIPAA, OSHA, and Infection Control compliance.
