Gold Standard Auditor Training - Hand Hygiene


The Commission is currently reviewing options for Gold Standard Auditor Training (GSA) training in regard to hand hygiene.  The Commission will consult with states and territories and the private health sector regarding these options.

Additions to the waiting list for training of Gold Standard Auditors (GSAs) have been suspended while new arrangements for training are made.

New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia have arrangements for training GSAs for public health service organisations. Information about GSA workshops in those states can be obtained by contacting the Jurisdictional Coordinator for each of those states.

There are no arrangements for other states and territories or the private sector at present. There are currently nearly 1,300 GSAs nationally who can provide General Auditor (GA) training. These GSAs are encouraged to provide GA training to staff from their organisation, and other organisations, where possible.

It is expected that new arrangements will be able to be advised in December 2021.
