The support materials focus on the realities of health and social care practice and guide candidates in applying knowledge of good hygiene to ensure that patients and clients are treated in a safe, clean environment.
Who needs this qualification?
This qualification is aimed at employees in the health and social care sector who may already have received basic health and safety training, but would benefit from additional focused training in hygiene hazards and controls. This will include people providing care and those who provide cleaning and other support services in a broad range of contexts – for example, in hospitals, nursing homes, care homes, patients’ /clients’ own homes, prisons, residential schools, etc.
