Infection Prevention and Control Signage

Standardised infection prevention and control signage for Standard and Transmission-based Precautions

Standardised signs

Standardised signs are available to all health service organisations wishing to increase the awareness of healthcare workers, patients and visitors to the necessary precautions to be applied for all patients (Standard Precautions) and for those patients who require Transmission-based Precautions, due to their known or suspected diagnosis.

The signage is available in several formats using both pictures and icons.

Approach 1

This approach combines both standard precautions and transmission based precautions into a single poster. Photographic images are used to support the special precautions.

Approach 2

Approach 2 is the same as Approach 1, but using symbols instead of photographic images.

Approach 3

This approach presents standard precautions and transmission-based precautions in separate posters. This approach allows more room for focusing on the precautions, including supporting imagery for the standard precautions.
