Infection Prevention and Control at Work: Basic Awareness Training (FREE!)
Though often invisible to the naked eye, infectious hazards can have a devastating impact on our health. Infectious hazards may exist in any type of workplace. It is everyone’s responsibility (e.g., employer, supervisor, and worker) to recognize and control these hazards with the same diligence as other workplace health and safety hazards.
Developed in consultation with infection control consultants and epidemiologists, this free, 30-minute eLearning program will equip workers with knowledge in how infections spread and what action can be taken to protect themselves and others from infectious hazards in the workplace.
This course will teach you:
- What Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) is and why it is important
- How infections are spread
- What steps you and others can take to prevent and control infections in the workplace
