Course Outcome

The aim of infection control is to prevent and control the spread of infection to others and yourself. We do this by using safe work practices based on knowledge of microbiology and spread of infection. Under the law, if you provide a high-risk personal appearance service, your business or the business you work for will need to be approved by your local government council with a penetration licence.

Examples of high-risk appearance services include: Cosmetic tattooing, Permanent makeup, Body tattooing, Body piercing, Scarring or cutting a person’s skin to make a permanent mark, pattern or design, Implanting natural or synthetic substances into a person’s skin. The above mentioned is skin penetration, which means that during the procedure the skin or mucous membrane is broken.

You must have an approved infection control qualification to apply the above services. There are many other Federal and State standards and guidelines published to give you advice on how to control infection risks within your work environment.
