Step One - Enhanced Facility Disinfection Program
Site Assessment and PPE

Prior to entering any facility for enhanced disinfection project work, perform a site assessment and ensure that you have the proper personal protective equipment (PPE).

A proper site assessment will allow you to gather the full range of information relevant to the project.

  1. Identify Your Facility Hazards: Biological, Chemical, Physical
  2. Create Your Work Plan
  3. Determine the Required PPE
 

Identify Your Facility Hazards

Biological Facility Hazard

Determine whether workers may be exposed to sources of infectious diseases, molds, toxic or poisonous plants, or animal materials 

Chemical Facility Hazard

Identify if there are harmful chemicals, caustic substances, pesticides, or heavy metals

Physical Facility Hazard

Identify any exposures to sharp surfaces, heights, structural issues, hot/cold surfaces, noise, and electricity

 

  

Create Your Work Plan

There are several areas and factors to consider when writing up work plan to clean and disinfect your facility. Be sure to consider quality and direction of indoor airflow, presence of electricity or running water, proper training of Staff, and waste removal too.
