The basic principles of Infection Control form a crucial role in maintaining health standards in the workplace. As a health or social care worker with individuals in your care, you need to understand your responsibilities regarding Infection Control in your workplace. This course equips you with all you need to know. 

Every year, lives are lost unnecessarily in places of care such as hospitals and care homes due to the spread of infection. With basic, standard adherence to hygiene and Infection Control as a matter of regularity, many of these instances can be avoided. As a health or social care worker, you need to know what is expected of you whether you work in the private or the public sector.  

You will learn how to encourage others - both staff and patients - to alter personal hygiene habits and to manage and control the spread of dangerous infection.  

During the session, you’ll cover:

Your obligations and responsibilities as either an employer or employee

The correct way to hand wash and use gloves
Effective housekeeping
The correct use and disposal of needles and other sharp utensils
