Q: outline current legalisation and regulatory body standards which are relevant to the prevention and control of infection
A: Understand legislation and policies relating to prevention and control of infections Legislation and regulations affecting infection prevention and control The prevention and control of infection should be a high priority within the health care [ setting for many reasons. Not least is the legal responsibility to have a duty of care for the patients/clients. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
and Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 Both employers and employees are responsible for their own actions in the workplace. All reasonable steps should be taken when carrying out your work duties and all staff should have adequate health and safety training, and measures should be taken to ensure that policies and procedures are in place and adhered to. For example, it is the employers? responsibility to provide adequate protective equipment and the employee?s responsibility to use it appropriately. The Public Health (Control of Diseases) Act 1984 - Provides information on the legal requirements for the reporting of contagious or infectious diseases, for example, Tuberculosis, Hepatitis, HIV and Legionella. Food Safety Act 1990 The requirements of this act apply to any area where food is prepared, stored or eaten. Control is required to ensure that the risks of any infection, as a result of bad handling of food, are minimised. For more: ]
