Controlling the spread of infection is vital in a wide variety of workplaces, including hospitals, care homes, schools and nurseries, and anywhere else people live and work together.
Training for the HABC Infection Control qualification will raise the 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 in terms of ensuring they 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 – ideally holding a relevant qualification.
The Level 2 National Award in Infection Control is aimed at anyone needing to develop the underpinning knowledge of how to control the spread of infection in their workplace or home environment.
This includes giving an increased understanding of the causes of infections, the conditions in which they thrive and the ways that they can be spread. It also covers suitable methods of cleaning and waste disposal that help prevent the spread of infection, along with the personal protective equipment they can use for their own safety.
