Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) 8 Hour
Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) is a process to identify and mitigate hazards associated with the spread of infectious agents during construction activities in healthcare facilities. This 8-hour course provides the necessary information to make the correct decisions that support better patient outcomes. The basis of risk mitigation starts with the matrix tool. The student will understand the purpose and use of the matrix tool in assessing risks specific to the construction activity, whether the student will be involved in small-scale short duration (SSSD) activities – typically one standard shift, or less – or working on renovations/demolitions that require multiple shifts. Then your instructor will support that understanding with specific information on how risk is mitigated through established controls, like work practices (wet methods, HEPA vacuuming, and prompt cleanup and disposal), and engineering controls such as establishing and maintaining a negative air pressure system. This course is a must for any contractor/vendor that will disturb surfaces within the healthcare facility. Others who will benefit from this comprehensive training course include construction managers, infection control/preventionists, architects & engineers, and any individual who may disturb surfaces inside and outside the building envelope.
A 25-question multiple choice quiz will be given with a 72% or better score required for successful completion. Each successful student receives a signed certificate of attendance, photo ID wallet card (non-virtual classes), and a hard hat sticker that indicates the student’s level of training.
