COVID-19: Infection Control Advice for Health Care Workers

Here’s a quick video we have taken today that we encourage to share with your colleagues.

As you know infection control is vital across all areas of care, particularly in light of the risk of further outbreaks of COVID-19 in Australia.

Correct hand hygiene techniques are a key component of infection control. In the video Donna and Leah cover how to properly wash and sanitise your hands. This is a timely reminder and relevant for everyone, from care workers in aged care and home care, to family members, friends and co-workers.

This refresher video demonstrates the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) hand washing and hand rubbing process as well as discussing the 5 moments when health-care workers should perform hand hygiene.

At Empower, all staff are required to undertake the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care’s Hand Hygiene training module, once completed the module provides certification. The link to the module is below if you would like to share it across your team.


We have also attached the WHO’s hand wash and hand sanitise poster resource tools to place around your organisation.
