The PPS model is designed to be an effective educational tool to assist police, fire, paramedics and justice service workers in protecting themselves from communicable disease that may exist in their shared client base and overlapping work environments. The PPS model is an interactive, fluid and dynamic system to enable ESWs and JSWs to conceptualize protective strategies they can adopt while engaging their work environments to include IPAC. Consistent use of the PPS is the most important step ESWs and JSWs can take to protect themselves, their families, friends, co-workers and communities from communicable disease.
