Safety training program from a healthcare staffing leader.
At Aureus, the health and safety of each of our employees while on a travel assignment is of utmost importance.
We take your safety and well-being seriously, which is why we’ve developed a comprehensive Safety Training Program that is in accordance with all current OSHA standards.
Completion of the program is required of each Aureus employee, including travel nurses, travel PTs, travel OTs, and other allied health professionals prior to being placed on a travel job assignment nationwide. Your account manager will provide you with more information on how to get started.
