Infection Prevention and Control

Protect your employees and limit the spread of infection with our highly effective Infection Prevention & Control Management System.

Every business, regardless of size, should have an infection control policy in place. The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic of 2020 was a startling reminder of how much damage a virus can do when it’s allowed to spread freely amongst a population, and it forced many organisations to dramatically reshape their processes and procedures so as to keep their staff safe.

Implementing an Infection Prevention and Control Management System is an excellent way to prepare your business for future outbreaks and to make it as difficult as possible for illness to spread throughout your company.


How can ISO Accelerator help?

We at ISO Accelerator have produced a comprehensive Infection Prevention and Control Management System for small and medium-sized businesses.

The management system can be implemented in isolation or – due to its structure – it can be simply integrated into other management systems such as those that meet the requirements of ISO 9001:2015.

This service includes:
  • An infection control policy for your organisation
  • A complete management system, including a user manual
  • Infection prevention and control objectives
  • A risk assessment template
  • Training documentation
  • Useful links to further guidance
  • 2 hours of remote consultancy to help support implementation
  • And more...
If required (and at no extra cost), once you have implemented your system we can conduct a remote audit on your Infection Prevention and Control Management System. Subject to your system being compliant with the requirements of the Management System, we can supply a certificate of implementation. The certificate is valid for 1 year and can be renewed annually subject to a renewal fee and your system remaining compliant to the requirements of the Management System.

(Alternatively, you can purchase the infection control policy on its own if you wish.)

Please be aware that our system was developed based on existing best practices and the advice of experienced infection prevention and control specialists.

Is my business legally required to have an infection control policy?

At present, there is no law mandating that a business must have a formal infection control policy in place.

However, in the wake of the recent coronavirus crisis, there is a strong possibility that the UK Parliament (and other legislatures around the world) will consider passing such a law.

If this were to happen, businesses may well be required to implement an Infection Prevention and Control Management System in order to protect workers and the general public from infectious diseases.

If your business needs an Infection Prevention and Control Management System, please call ISO Accelerator on 01308 302010 or contact us online today.
