Install Offering Infection Control Risk Training

Washington, DC, November 20, 2020--INSTALL and the United Brotherhood of Carpenters began offering Infection Control Risk Infection training.

The floorcovering installation industry is actively fighting the spread of COVID-19 and other healthcare-associated infection (HAIs) in major ways. This includes adopting Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) standards and protocols that help safeguard patients from potential contaminants during renovations and construction projects. 

ICRA has been protecting patients and healthcare workers for years before the pandemic. But now, it is more important than ever for all construction trades to adopt ICRA-to protect patients and healthcare workers across the nation, especially as Covid-19 cases are rising nationwide.

The United Brotherhood of Carpenters (UBC) offers two ICRA courses: ICRA Awareness eight-hour training and ICRA 24-hour training. The eight-hour course is for healthcare facility staff or anyone entering an active jobsite. The 24-hour training is for carpenters, covering the same content as the eight-hour training in addition to how to build and maintain barriers. 

The curriculum was developed by consulting with leading construction-related infection control experts and is reviewed regularly to keep materials relevant to industry needs.
