- Course Information
Why is it important to do this course?
Every workplace has risks of infection, no matter what the industry.
However, work activities that involve coming in close contact with human or animal skin, blood and/or bodily waste and fluids put workers at serious risk of contracting or even transmitting an infection.
For this reason, everyone at work should:
1) be aware of the ways that infections can spread from person to person and;
2) understand the standard infection control procedures that help to minimise infection risks and its spreading.
This structured programme empowers learners with this important knowledge in an interactive and thought-provoking manner, helping them to safely manage infection risk for the wellbeing of themselves, their colleagues and those that they support and interact with on a daily basis.
