Biohazard training - managing blood and body fluid spills

Here at Guardian Angels, it’s our job to provide healthcare workers and other professionals with the knowledge, skills and support to ensure that they can manage a variety of medical and care requirements, our biohazard training is an essential course for those working in environments where blood or body fluid spills are at risk of occurring, such as:


  • Nursing homes
  • Care homes
  • Prisons
  • Young offender institutions


Any blood or body fluid spill such as vomit, feces and urine, must be cleaned and the area must be decontaminated in order to contain any potential spread of infections and viruses. Healthcare professionals must be fully aware of the risks, and how to manage blood and other biohazard spills efficiently and effectively. In order to provide comprehensive instruction, our biohazard training course includes spill kit training too. Healthcare organisations should always have spill kits on the premises, ensuring you have the correct tools to minimise the chance of cross-infection and contamination.


What does our biohazard and spill kit training course cover?

The biohazard training course will prepare delegates to deal and manage blood or body fluid spillages in the workplace. Trainees will learn about infection prevention and control, best practice guidelines and how to correctly use a spillage kit. The course covers:
