"The course addressed the primary issues of Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) as it relates to remediation contractors working in a healthcare facility", stated Gary Matzelle, Vice President of Branch Restoration. "Performing any type of construction or remediation services in a healthcare setting requires a thorough understanding of critical environments and exposure risks during real work time", said Matzelle.
"Contractors need to be aware and follow proper protocol when dealing in healthcare areas prone to infections and contamination"
