Safe use of disinfectants and detergents in cleanrooms

Disinfectants and detergents form part of the contamination control strategy in cleanrooms and controlled environments. While it is important that these chemicals are effective, it is also important that they are safe to use.

Recently a raft of new safety legislation has emerged about handling of chemicals, personnel protective measures, and environmental controls (in terms of occupational exposure and waste disposal).

Tim Sandle assesses the key points and unravels the consequences for cleanroom users in a new article for the UK Science Parks Association.

The article can be viewed on-line here, from page 81. The reference is:
