Healthcare Construction

Construction Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA):
The health and safety of every patient, facility employee and construction worker is our number one priority.

Inadequate procedures during an occupied healthcare facility construction project can cause fatalities if contaminants are released into the environment. Lethal pathogens trapped above ceilings, behind walls or under floors, can infiltrate patient and staff environments via HVAC systems, foot traffic, and other conduits if the proper precautions are not taken. More than 100,000 people are killed by hospital-acquired infections annually in the United States and Canada. Patients are the ultimate beneficiaries when a safe, contained jobsite is maintained in an occupied facility.

The Construction ICRA training program was developed in response to the needs of the medical community and the contractors that serve it. There is a course available for all personnel on any stops along the construction chain. This service is provided in partnership with our contractors and comes at no cost to the healthcare facility.

This training is available for all project partners including: hospital staff, architects, project managers, contractors, sub-contractors, contractor personnel and other trades.

Take charge of your healthcare protocol. Require your contractor to have trained and tested carpenters who are skilled in life-saving Best Practices in Healthcare Construction.
