LIVE WEBINAR
Are You Prepared for USP 800?



MAY

11:00am ET


The United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) estimates that more than 8 million US healthcare workers are exposed to hazardous drugs (HDs) in the workplace each year. They developed their latest standard, USP <800> to reduce the risks of handling HDs in healthcare settings, and help promote greater patient safety, worker safety, and environmental protection.

USP <800> sets out to accomplish this through a broad set of requirements encompassing inventories of HDs, engineering controls, personal protective equipment (PPE), personnel training, spill control measures, documentation, and other protective measures. While USP is not itself a regulatory agency, some state boards of pharmacy have already adopted <800> and are using it to evaluate facilities during inspections. Additionally, agencies such as the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) and Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) will be evaluating the practices of establishments against USP <800>, so it's important to make sure your practices are aligned. Are you ready?

Join us for this webinar where we'll be covering:

  • The purpose, content, and applicability of USP <800>
  • The definition of a "hazardous drug"
  • OSHA/HazCom requirements for hazardous drugs
  • Specific requirements of the standard
  • The importance of USP <800> during the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Best practices to align with USP <800>

Make sure you're ready for USP 800!
