Whenever you gather large numbers of people in a confined space, there’s a risk that dangerous bacteria and viruses will spread. This is the case for preschools, schools, universities, TAFEs and private colleges. Protecting students is every bit as important as educating them. 

Items and surfaces that are superficially clean can harbour infectious agents. These infectious agents can exist in the natural environment, the built environment and on the body, according to the Australian Guidelines for the Prevention and Control of Infection in Healthcare, and they can be spread via contact, droplets and through the air.

The recent SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) pandemic has demonstrated just how quickly harmful pathogens can spread and how disruptive they can be for educational facilities. There are many more viruses that circulate including common cold and influenza viruses, and dangerous pathogens like VRE, MRSA and more.

The good news is that the transmission of infection can be prevented. To achieve this, education facilities need to commit to robust Infection Prevention procedures. This includes effective surface cleaning and disinfection, particularly of high-touch areas like door handles. It also requires excellent hand hygiene, achievable by ensuring that hand sanitisers are easily accessible for students across the campus.
