Every industry in Ireland today that has a cleanroom, needs to be absolutely sure that the personnel who work there, are fully aware and strictly adhere to the tight controls necessary to ensure contamination within this environment is very tightly controlled.

Cleanroom personnel, when working in cleanrooms for long periods of time, can often become complacent in their working habits. This can be greatly improved by providing personnel with a better understanding of contamination, how it can enter a cleanroom and its impact on the process and products. This up-skilling/re-skilling of personnel with the relevant skills, awareness and knowledge will greatly help them to take ownership of their role within the cleanroom and the products they produce, with a specific focus on controlling and minimising the risk of contamination.

The aim of this programme is to give delegates a better understanding and heightened awareness as to how they and the various cleanroom processes they perform, can significantly contribute to contamination levels.
