Infection control is a fundamental aspect of Health and Safety management within a healthcare environment. Consequently, this Infection Control topic is included separately within the Practice Support Manual. It provides information about infection control in a dental practice, covering areas such as health clearance and immunisation, hand hygiene, occupational exposure management and decontamination. 

For further information about Health and Safety legislation, general requirements and duties and for advice on other aspects of Health and Safety within dental practice, refer to Health and Safety – General.
