(UK) Occupational Health and Safety in Healthcare: Risk of Airborne Infection Mobile App
The (UK) Occupational Health and Safety in Healthcare: Risk of Airborne Infection mobile app is a guide to prevention and good practice in the healthcare sector aims at improving health and safety standards in health institutions in the EU.
How does it work?
Health service workers engaged in different areas or activities are exposed to quite different types of risk from infection. The app on focuses Airborne Infection. Airborne pathogens are transmitted almost exclusively from one person to the next (human-to-human transmission). Aerosols are formed when patients with an infection of the respiratory organs (lungs, bronchi or larynx) cough, sneeze or speak. Thus, miniscule droplets and droplet nuclei are released as a fine mist in the exhaled air. The size of these aerosols varies as they are subject to diverse aerodynamic factors. Sales associates can copy apps to accounts they manage.
