Infection control training

Infection control is essential at all times, especially in work environments working with vulnerable people such as healthcare, but it has even more relevance during the current pandemic. Having effective infection control measures in place reduces the risk to employees, clients and particularly those most at risk. As part of this, employees needs a sound understanding of the importance of these measures as well as what they are.

Employers with employees working in key roles will want to give particular consideration to ensuring their employees’ knowledge regarding infection control practices is up to date.

A cost effective solution

One way to do this is through our high quality e learning short course, which now includes a module on COVID-19. The course can usually be completed in less than an hour and does not have to be completed in one sitting, meaning little time out of the work role.

The cost of this course is only £5 + VAT per person, meaning it is an extremely cost effective way to update skills and knowledge at this time.

The course includes information on:

  • pathogens that cause infection
  • the chain of infection and how to break it
  • the consequences of infection
  • hand hygiene
  • PPE
  • handling of waste
  • environmental contamination
  • legislation
  • responsibilities of the employer and employee
  • COVID-19 – what it is, how to protect ourselves and others and how to stay informed.
