Controlling the spread of infection is vital in a wide variety of workplaces, including hospitals, care homes, schools and nurseries, in fact, anywhere people live and work together. This qualification raises employees’ awareness of minimising the risk of infection.
It is essential that employees are aware of the hazards and controls associated with the spread of infection at work. This is not only important to ensure they themselves are protected, but also to reduce the risk to others around them.
One of the higher risk environments is healthcare. Every year a significant number of people are made ill or die as a direct result of the spread of infections. Healthcare providers have both a legal and moral obligation to make certain that they are not contributing to these statistics by ensuring their staff are effectively trained and ideally hold a relevant qualification.
This course has been designed to help organisations to comply with requirements in this subject area. It gives individuals an improved understanding of the causes of infections, the conditions in which they thrive and the ways they are spread. It also covers suitable methods of cleaning and waste disposal to help stop infection spreading, as well as information on personal protective equipment that can be used.
Successful candidates will be awarded the Infection Control certificate valid for 3 years
