Course Information

This course focuses on applying the principles and concepts that help to assess and control the risks of infection and hazards in the workplace, as well as the underpinning theory. You will explore human and system factors, which are essential for you to understand the key issues regarding infection prevention principles, including knowledge of the types of micro-organism that cause infection, methods of transmission and transmission routes.

You will also learn how to maintain a clean environment in accordance with national policies and obligations in infection prevention principles. You will explore a variety of decontamination methods for low, medium and high risk areas. This will help you to recognise that the level of risk to health can differ according to the type of workplace, specific settings and circumstances.

UCIC promotes the practical application of scientific principles and management knowledge to help managers meet everyday issues, arising in both public and private sector cleaning organisations.
