Infection Control Training Online

Infection Control Training Online

Infection control and prevention is an essential requirement for any business where work activities could put employees or their customers at risk of passing on or contracting an infection. In light of the Recent Covid-19 Pandemic, this Infection Control Training Online has never been so necessary. The principle of hand washing and social distancing is still recognised as the best way to prevent the spread of any disease. 

Employees likely to be exposed to a higher risk of infection include those working in a healthcare environment, in close contact with people or animals, cleaning human and animal waste and those working with young children particularly in Preschools. Infections are quickly passed on, but equally easy to avoid if everyone on the premises takes proper preventative action.

This online infection control course covers the sources of infections and how they pass from person to person. This course will start by defining infection prevention and control and explaining the impact of good and bad infection control. 

It then goes into detail about, the legislation that applies to infection control, the different types of microorganisms, how bacteria are transmitted, the chain of infection, and much more

The Infection Control Training Course will provide learners with a comprehensive understanding of the process of preventing infections from spreading; this includes proper handwashing procedures, wound dressing, cleaning activities, and waste disposal.
