The Tennessee Hospital Association recently partnered with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters to host an Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) Construction Training for infection preventionists and facility/plant operations department leaders. The training was offered in four regions across Tennessee in October and November 2022. The training promotes communication, awareness, protocols, and safety during healthcare facility construction projects to protect patients, visitors, staff, and construction workers from potential harm associated with construction. The 8-hour training program was led by Jay Schuelly from Southeastern Carpenters Regional Council. The participants were presented with a Certificate of Completion in ICRA Construction Trades Best Practices Awareness.
