COVID-Secure: Cleaning Guidance

COVID secure cleaning protocols

On Monday 11th May 2020, the government released a guidance document titled, “Working safely during COVID-19 in labs and research facilities.” We have thoroughly reviewed the government guidance document and released a series of informative emails throughout this week giving practical advice on how a Covid-secure cleanroom / lab / workstation can be achieved.

Reintegrating operators to the workplace during the COVID-19 pandemic presents an opportunity for all cleanroom users to reinforce standard ‘best practice’ whilst introducing additional safety measures such as replacing existing filter media, installing cleanroom-compatible safety screens and adding extra work stations.

Connect 2 Cleanrooms remains available to support you in not just protecting your product and process but your colleagues too.

Cleaning guidance

In section 5.2 Keeping the workplace clean, the document states the objective is to “keep the workplace clean and prevent transmission by touching contaminated surfaces.” In labs and cleanrooms, the focus usually lies on protecting the process, so there may be some adjustments that need to be made to shift the emphasis onto protecting people.

Free resources

In-line with the government guidelines, we’ve created the following resources to help promote safe workspaces, protecting yourself and your colleagues.

Please always follow your own risk assessments. You may wish to laminate signage before displaying in a classified environment.
