Occupational Safety and Health for Cleanrooms

A facility manager’s task is to decide which requirements apply to his or her operation, and what particular segment of their operation crosses over or intersects with the specific industry standard that may apply at any given point of their daily operations. This is the basis of an interesting article by Randall B. Charpentier for Controlled Environments.
Charpentier addresses industry standards for cleanroom operations. This includes:
  • Medical services and first aid
  • Exit routes, emergency action plans, and fire prevention plans
  • Fire prevention plans
  • Fire protection
  • Hazardous materials
  • Toxic and hazardous substances/air contaminants
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Occupational exposure to hazardous chemicals in laboratories
