Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Resources below have been developed to provide guidance on contact, droplet and airborne precautions in healthcare settings. More information on Transmission-Based Precautions is available on our Infection Prevention and Control pages.

Resources and information should be read in conjunction with NSW Health.

PPE training videos are available for viewing via YouTube or, if you represent a local health district and you cannot access this application, contact CEC Communications for a file copy.

These videos briefly outline the steps for putting on and taking off PPE when applying combined contact and droplet precautions or combined contact droplet and airborne precautions in addition to standard precautions, when caring for patients with some infectious diseases such as COVID-19.
