M. Frank Higgins was pleased to host the North Atlantic carpenters training personnel in our office on two consecutive Saturdays at the end of February for training in the Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) Best Practices in Health Care Construction. Higgins hosted and compensated 12 installers to attend this course, with the third Saturday held at the training facility in Yalesville, CT.
ICRA teaches UBC members how to contain pathogens, control airflow, protect patients, and work without disrupting adjacent operations. Members learn to classify work areas to minimize risks; understand and adhere to ICRA protocols; and communicate with a facility’s ICRA team.
In this challenging time of COVID-19, this training could not have come at a more appropriate time. Once we get out of this crisis, our install team will be even more prepared when working on flooring installations in hospital facilities going forward.
