The Workplace Audit Training Module uses real life photographs, graphics, interactive activities and video demonstrations to assist health care providers in identifying Infection Control and Occupational Health deficiencies and discusses ways to resolve them. The module discusses the use of a formal workplace audit as well as informal, everyday workplace assessments and how they can both be used to improve the safety of the workplace.

The training consists of four modules:
1. Review basic occupational health concepts
2. Workplace assessments and workplace audits
3. Steps for a formal workplace infection control audit
4. Practice your skills

Each module takes about 10 minutes to complete.

Prerequisites

You must complete the BC Infection Control and Hand Hygiene module (and pass the test) before taking this module.
