Clinical Cleaning (Infectious Cleaning)


This course has been modified from clinical cleaning procedures used in health care facilities. The course includes procedures for cleaning in infectious areas where there is a high risk of environmental surfaces contamination by an infective agent (harmful germs) which could be readily transmitted (spread) from person to person visa coughing or sneezing and from contamination of surfaces, an infected carrier (person with illness) has touched, and contaminated with their infectious germs.

Where possible the language throughout this course has been modified to cater for cleaning and environmental services staff, a significant number for whom English is their second language.

This course provides information on cleaning standards that may be required during an outbreak such as the Corona Virus (now called COVID-19). Cleaning and infection control procedures are the responsibility of the individual facility and where applicable their commercial cleaning company.

This course uses modified cleaning procedures form clinical settings and should not be interpreted as a recommended cleaning standard for any facility or building without seeking further specialist advice. Specialist advice should be sought from persons with expertise in infection control procedures when finalising a clinical cleaning standard for any type of virus outbreak.
