LGA is pleased to announce six of our healthcare teammates have received their ICRA Certification through the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters (EASRCC.) Working in an occupied healthcare facility requires shared knowledge among the trades and construction team to mitigate the potential risks to patients and healthcare workers exposed to the construction activity. The Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA): Construction Trade Best Practices Awareness Training Workshop provides an introduction to the concerns and processes of working in an occupied healthcare facility and enhancing awareness of the unique nature of working in these facilities. This specific course was tailored more to hospital facilities and design personnel.

Being offered virtually, attendees included hospital facilities’ personnel from several hospitals and states, along with local Contractors. The diverse mix of attendees created a perfect environment for sharing new ideas and learning together.

LGA participants included Miki Vargo, David Schaefer, Gary Atcheson, Gretchen Kurzawa, Stephanie Nepali, and Heidi Tabor.
