People in the cleanroom – contamination risks, clothing and behaviours

During this webinar Dr Tim Sandle will run through strategies that can help minimise the risk of cleanroom contamination by people.



Cleanroom contamination has a wide range of sources but by far the most common is people, both what they carry into the cleanroom with them and the way they behave when they're inside.


Risks that aren't immediately obvious such as skin flakes, cosmetics, clothing debris and spittle must be considered as contaminants, along with common behaviours such as touching and rapid movements.


Here sterility expert Dr Tim Sandle runs through strategies that can help minimise these risks along with training to ensure the chances of contamination from people remains as small as possible.


People risks that will be discussed include:


  • Skin flakes and oil
  • Cosmetics and perfume
  • Spittle
  • Clothing debris (lint, fibres etc.)
  • Hair
  • Touching and transfer
  • Rapid movements
