Mercury Exposure (US)

Mercury Exposure (US)

Healthcare workers are exposed to a wide range of hazards in the workplace every day. Those hazards include exposure to mercury. Mercury is a heavy, silvery-white metal that is liquid at room temperature. In the healthcare setting, mercury is found in some thermometers and sphygmomanometers, and exposure sometimes occurs during sterilization and centrifugation of thermometers in maintenance areas. Mercury can also be found in pressure-sensing devices such as barometers, sensors in machine rooms, electronic equipment and some older medical devices. This course will provide you with a basic understanding of the health hazards associated with mercury exposure as well as prevention and post-spill procedures.
