CAN/CSA-Z317.13-17 - Infection control during construction, renovation, and maintenance of health care facilities
Fundamentals of Infection Control During Construction, Renovation and Maintenance of Healthcare Facilities
Effective Implementation and Practical Applications of Infection Control During Construction, Renovation and Maintenance of Health Care Facilities - 1 Day
Health care facilities undergoing construction or renovation are especially vulnerable to risks associated with viruses, bacteria and other sources of infection, and an effective infection control system is the first line of defense in protection.
Since its first publication in 2003, CSA Z317.13 - Infection Control during Construction, Renovation, and Maintenance of Health Care Facilities has revolutionized work practices in and around health care facilities. CSA Z317.13 provides guidance on preventive measures intended to protect patients, staff, and visitors from disease transmission and other health problems, such as allergic reactions, that can be produced during the construction, renovation, or maintenance of health care facilities.
Now in its fourth edition, the standard follows to the philosophies of the previous editions but includes a number of changes and improvements inspired by the users of this important document.
CSA Group also offers comprehensive training based on CSA Z317.13 to help users apply the standard, learn how to mitigate risks, implement damage control procedures and apply innovative thinking in the field of infection prevention and control.
