Let’s Talk About Risk Assessment and Infection Prevention Protocols

May 26, 2020

The newest Straight Talk video features tips from Dr. Gavin Macgregor-Skinner of the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC), a division of ISSA, on risk assessment and infection prevention protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Protocols begin with training all facility staff—including food service and laundry workers—on the proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE). It also includes training for cleaning staff in the correct use of disinfectants to deactivate the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

This training is essential as facilities begin reopening and allowing people on their premises again. To prevent another wave of COVID-19 infections, facilities need to consider everything from the layout of the building space and payment processes, to the installation of physical screens and barriers. Facility managers should consider implementing no-touch technology in restrooms and other building areas wherever possible.
