Infectious Disease and Biohazard Controls training course

How will this training course prepare me to safely clean an infectious disease or biohazard site?

Infectious disease and biohazard clean-ups, due to their nature, require a specialised approach. Our training course will introduce you to the correct procedures, processes and protocols that you need to safely clean an infectious disease or biohazard site. We dive into some of the common misconceptions that can put you at risk, and help you identify what you need to do to ensure you are compliant, have the correct insurances in place, know what chemicals you need and how to apply them.

Is there any hands-on or practical training involved?

No. This is a self-paced, virtual training course.

But do keep an eye out. As we develop the training course, there will be new content and add-ons, including training videos and up-to-date information.

What protocols do I need in place to safely clean a site of an infectious disease or biohazard?

Our infectious disease and biohazard self-paced training course will help you understand the steps you need to take to safely make safe a site using verifiable protocols.

The protocols that you need depend greatly on the site you are cleaning. Firstly, consider your entry and exit points—you don’t want people re-entering and re-contaminating the area—you may need security, or additional staff to secure the area. Secondly, consider your cleaning protocols, for example, how are you using your cloths? What chemicals are you using and how? And thirdly, consider how you are verifying that you are cleaning the site to a safe level.

Is spraying the site of an infectious disease or biohazard enough?

To answer this question, ask yourself; is it verifiable? Answering this question is dependent on factors like your specific business model, the chemicals you use and what they do, and even your suppliers. While we can’t answer this question for you, we can empower you to make the decision.
