Next sections focus on approved and non-approved behaviour while using cleanroom. As a rule of thumb, if you are not sure whether or not you are allowed to do something, DON’T!

Cleanroom Conduct-General Behaviour

  • If you see, hear or smell something unusual, use common sense and take necessary action.
  • Adopt a “better safe than sorry” attitude.
  • Report any violations of the rules to LS.
  • Report equipment problem, malfunction, or breakage to appropriate LS.
  • Hood, gown, booties with shoe covers, masks, gloves, and safety eyewear. Bouffant caps are required for long hair.
  • Keep all hair and ears covered with hood or cap.
  • Never open your gown in the cleanroom.
  • No corrugated cardboard, styrofoam, foam rubber or non-cleanroom paper is permitted in the cleanroom.
  • Be considerate by cleaning up your own mess, not messing up someone else's work.
  • Let the LS know when new supplies are needed, etc.
  • No pencil, erasers or retractable pens are permitted in the cleanroom.
  • Only authorized users may enter the cleanroom unescorted.
  • No eating and drinking is permitted in the lab.
  • Smoking is not permitted in the lab.
  • Ask for permission before bringing anything in or taking anything out of the cleanroom.
  • Do not run in the lab.
  • DO NOT modify equipment without the approval of the LS.
  • Do not cover up any equipment problem or breakage. This will only make the situation worse.
  • If you are not sure how a system works or anything else about it, ask the responsible person before you use it and in case something worse happens. Please do not be ashamed or hesitate to ask.
