Through SARS, H1N1, COVID-19, and the infection risks we help businesses navigate every day, we’ve learned how to make IPAC direct, simple, and effective.
Working with us, you get more than regulatory compliance — you get a culture of safety that extends from your documents and training through to your facility design and materials. So, while the threat might be invisible, you'll always have clear control over it.
Generally speaking, yes. If there are potential infection risks in your workplace, you need to prepare and implement an exposure control plan.
Yes, within reason, a business is responsible for due diligence in terms of protecting customers from infection. For instance, a bank can’t reasonably stop every customer from catching the flu, but it can reasonably take steps to lower the likelihood of that happening with measures like hands-free entryways and hand sanitizer dispensers.
For safety documents and programs that require it, our consultants are able to sign off on them as qualified individuals. For training programs delivered through our sister organization, the Infection Control and Training Group, those who complete an IPAC training program will receive a certificate.
Workers and employers are both responsible for maintaining infection control. Employers, for example, are responsible for creating and educating workers on infection prevention procedures, but workers are responsible for following those procedures and reporting on potential issues or violations.
