We completed the online OSHA safety training today as a small group. We each registered so that we would get our certificates of completion. We really like the format because we could pause the session and discuss the information specifically as it applies to our small facility. Nice presentation! Thanks.

Miron Construction engaged Marge McFarlane to collaborate with us on the creation and launch of our new Healthcare Construction Handbook, a reference tool for our Project Managers, Superintendents, and Foremen who work in new or existing healthcare facilities. Working with Marge was an extraordinary experience. Not only did she offer her wide experience of Infection Prevention and best practices, she integrated her knowledge with Miron’s existing policies and procedures to create a truly unique product.
The creation of the manual was not the end of the journey for us. Marge then introduced the manual to our staff and with her real life examples of the risks of working in healthcare facilities--she helped our field staff understand the true complexity of their work. I would recommend Marge to any individual or group that wants to raise their awareness of the inherent risks of healthcare construction and how to mitigate them. We tried to implement a formal program for several years and had only limited success. Without Marge we would never have achieved the goal we did. We and our clients and their patients are all better due to her efforts.

Marge McFarlane was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful throughout the education process. She was able to explain the importance of infection prevention and interim life safety processes to Facilities Maintenance Technicians, Healthcare Contractors, Quality & Safety personnel, and Infection Preventionists. Marge’s style of educating was effective yet entertaining. She answers all questions promptly and in a manner that is clear without being patronizing. We have organized numerous training sessions throughout our system and I’ve received many compliments on her presentations from the staff. I would highly recommend Marge McFarlane to any facility or organization looking to educate and improve employee awareness on the importance of infection prevention and interim life safety for day to day maintenance, repairs as well as construction.

I have known Marge McFarlane for over 25 years, and it is rare to find an individual as experienced, knowledgeable, conscientious, and reliable as her. One of the things that makes Marge amazing is her ability to accurately recall environment of care, interim life safety, emergency preparedness, and other safety requirements--she is a walking safety database. Another valuable asset is Marge’s speaking skill. She can make a topic that could be dry and boring into an entertaining and memorable presentation. I whole-heartedly recommend Marge McFarlane.
