Infection Prevention Support from Derbyshire County Council
Derbyshire County Council has secured funding to assist our vulnerable populations with obtaining resources to further reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus. Adherence to infection prevention control measures is lower in certain population groups, due in part to financial barriers to purchase basic supplies.
Currently, DCC has supplies of: disposable facemasks, hand sanitiser, liquid soaps, washing up liquid, kitchen/surface sanitiser, disposable cloths, household cleaning gloves, toilet cleaner, disposable bin liners and disposable aprons, along with an advice leaflet on how to use these safely and effectively.
If your organisation or community group works with vulnerable population groups in Derbyshire, then you can place regular orders to receive these products (you can choose which ones you want).
You will need to ensure that these products are included in your Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) inventory with suitable assessments for storage, handling and use. DCC COSHH assessments for these products and manufacturers data sheets are provided to assist with this. Any flammable substances will need to be included in your fire risk assessment.
There is a simple online order system and Derbyshire County Council Logistics Hub will arrange to deliver your products to your specified destination ready for you to disseminate to your clients.
You will need to register here IPC Measures in Vulnerable Populations – Application Form (office.com) Once your application has been approved, DCC will send you the link to start placing your order and the team will deliver the products to you.
