Safe Cleanup of Bio Spills

Approximate duration:

9 minutes 25 seconds


This program is designed to allow people involved in cleaning up Bio Spills to undertake a valid risk assessment of this task and to act on that risk assessment in their workplace.

The course defines what bio spills are. It then follows a step by step risk management process looking at the hazards associated with these tasks, the way the risks can be assessed, the way these risks might be eliminated and the control methods that can be used to reduce risks to an acceptable level if elimination of the risks is not possible. The course then looks at how a process of monitoring and review can be carried out to make sure that the process continues to work effectively.

The program concludes by providing workers with information about what they can do to look after their own health and safety at work.

The course is followed by a quiz which requires a pass mark of 80% to be considered competent.
