Alternative Risks To Cleanrooms Presented By People

With tattooing, piercings and sunbeds increasing in popularity (with tattoos the levels in some industrialized countries is at around 20 percent among the adult population).These aspects introduce novel risks in relation to skin damage and infection., and hence to the cleanroom.

Complications depend substantially on the circumstances in which body modifications are applied, the materials used, and the body region concerned. These mainly result from shortcomings in the application itself (and the rate of healing required) or as a consequence of hygiene regimens. Infections arise as part of the long-realized dualism of the skin microbiome and the balance of different microbial types: transient versus resident.

How should cleanroom managers respond and what types of control measures need to be put into place?
