While the manufacturing process for electronics, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and food products differ from each other, there is a common thread that connects them–a cleanroom. A cleanroom environment is specifically monitored and controlled for contaminants like microbes, dirt, dust, chemical vapors, and aerosol particles. Even the tiniest dust particles can impair microchip components, just as invisible mold can make prescription drugs and foods unfit for human consumption. Which is why sensitive products are produced in decontaminated cleanrooms. However, cleanrooms don’t maintain their high levels of purity on their own, instead, they require the work of trained employees who understand how to properly clean and disinfect the surfaces of these sterile manufacturing spaces.
Beyond Visually Clean
Keeping controlled environments contaminant-free takes trained skill, and without it, many facilities find it difficult to achieve a level of cleanliness beyond visually clean floors, walls, and equipment. Mopping and wiping are only effective at removing surface level impurities, so cleanroom operators must go beyond what can be seen by the naked eye and employ strict, tested methods for mastering high-level decontamination. These techniques are not instinctive, nor do they come naturally, which is why cleanroom employees must learn the proper skills from certified experts.
First-Hand Cleanroom Training
Training cleanroom workers starts with establishing a curriculum of competency-based instruction for cleaning and disinfection. Workers must learn from instructors how to stay engaged during the cleaning process as a slip in mindfulness can result in contamination. Companies should partner with proven experts who can demonstrate to workers first-hand how to properly maintain a sterile environment, and these professionals should be routinely consulted to ensure that their teachings are carried out.
