The Importance of Preventing the Spread of Infection Training

Did you know the difference between containing an infection and passing it on to countless people could be as simple as washing your hands?

When an infection is on the rise, all of us play a part in stopping its spread. Since workplaces often involve lots of people working closely together and touching the same surfaces, it’s vitally important all employees know what to do to prevent the spread of infection.

FAQ's

If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

Employers and employees alike are responsible for preventing the spread of infections in the workplace. Employers must provide a safe environment for their staff and anyone else who might be affected by work activities. For their part, employees should follow any hygiene guidance rigorously and make sure they wash their hands regularly.

Infections spread via the air, through contaminated food, direct contact or indirect contact (such as surfaces) and through contact with bodily fluids. When people are together in a workplace, all of these ways of spreading an infection become more likely. Employees can help by having good hygiene habits such as washing their hands regularly.

Viruses and infections spread easily in offices because many people are spending long periods of time together, usually fairly close to one another. They touch the same surfaces and use the same equipment. With proper hand sanitising stations and cleaning procedures, the spread can normally be kept under control.
