read the graphical
guide to correct gowning procedures then read the rest of this document
MSSL cleanroom users must note that all external visitors must be accompanied by MSSL personnel when making use of the cleanroom. It is recommended that prior to the visit the cleanroom manager is informed, with the following information:
- Date of visit
- Duration of cleanroom use
- List of equipment required including equipment/tooling that the visitor will bring into the cleanroom
- MSSL person responsible for visitor
If the visitor has no or little experience of cleanrooms and procedures, the cleanroom manager must be informed. A walk through of procedures will then be arranged with the visitor at the time of arrival.
you are a visitor, please advise the cleanroom manager you will then
be assigned a temporary overall. It is preferable to arrange this before
your visit. If you are a regular user, you will be assigned a specific
overall and location in which to keep your cleanroom items.
fabric of the overall is relatively fragile. Take caution not to tear
the garment during the gowning procedure and while working in the Lab.
If any tears occur, immediately return to the gowning area to obtain
a new overall from the Cleanroom manager. If articles of clothing beneath
the gown need to be removed, do this in the gowning area only. It is recommended that static producing sweaters are removed before entering the cleanroom.
document describes the correct procedure for Gowning and the proper
protocol for general Cleanroom access. Cleanroom anti static overalls
are required for all personnel in the cleanroom at all times. These
overalls are effective at containing contamination originating from
clothing and skin. In general, one gowns from the head down and de-gowns
from the feet up.
limited number of coats or sweaters can be hung on the wall mounted coat rack outside
the cleanroom, so preference is for you to find another location outside
the Anteroom to store your coats/book bags
