Infectious Disease Control
Hospitals and medical facilities also run the risk of being affected by natural disasters. Like other businesses, these facilities rely on first responders and renovation crews to work on repairing the damages after floods, earthquakes, storms and other situations that happen. They also need trained professionals who are able to control infectious diseases throughout the restoration process. Having a renovation crew that is knowledgeable in infectious disease control can make this process less risky and more efficient.
Since hospitals affected by natural disasters risk the spread of airborne pathogens and infectious diseases, the requirement of construction compliance standards has become an increasing concern. It is crucial for first responders to be prepared for these challenges.
This is why DKI partnered with The Linders Health Institute and Gearhart & Associates, LLC. to bring specialized up-to-date training to DKI member companies. Those members can show you their proof of specialized training completion and their related accreditations: Critical Environment Reconstruction Contractors (CERC), Certified Healthcare Technician, Certified Healthcare Supervisor and/or Certified Healthcare Trainer.
