A little over a month ago, the National Clean Room Association (NCAA) released its annual “Cleanroom Part Guys” report, and in a stunning departure from the past year’s numbers, the organization saw an increase in cleanroom related issues during the 2017-2018 season.
While cleaning and maintenance was the most prevalent topic on the NCAA’s radar, the report also highlighted the growth of other cleaning related issues, including issues related to the use of air purifiers and the use and disposal of water in the air.
One of the issues that NCAA members reported was a growing concern that the amount of oxygen and water used in the cleaning process is affecting the health of the cleaning personnel.
While the EPA and the NCRA have both expressed concern with the use or disposal of these types of air conditioners, many organizations have yet to come to an agreement on whether they should be allowed to use them.
While there is a clear need for additional measures to reduce the environmental impact of cleaning and cleaning products, one of the things that is lacking is a set of rules or guidelines for cleaning and servicing the facilities.NCAA president Scott Wilson said the organization will continue to push for an end to air conditioner use in the Cleanroom and that the organization has received many questions about the topic.
The NCAA has been actively working to raise awareness of the issue and to develop guidelines for the cleaning of the facilities and cleaning equipment, Wilson said.
The organization plans to hold a conference on the topic later this year, he added.
According to NCAA data, the number of air conditioning units in operation increased by 3.5 percent in the 2017 season, and this trend will continue in 2018.
However, it is important to note that NCAB, a cleaning and disinfection organization, is not directly responsible for cleaning air quality in the facilities, Wilson told Fox Sports.
The Cleanroom Part Guy is a non-profit organization that is comprised of the most experienced and knowledgeable cleaning and sanitation professionals.
The group is comprised largely of professionals with a variety of backgrounds and training.NCAB has an extensive knowledge of the clean room and cleanroom aspects, Wilson added.NCSA has also developed an air quality program for its members, Wilson continued.
The NCSA has developed guidelines for safe cleaning and the safe disposal of air from the clean rooms and air conditioning systems, as well as for the proper use and storage of water.NCTA is currently working on a pilot program to allow the use, disposal, and storage (ADDS) of air filters and air purification devices.NCATE has developed a comprehensive list of air quality guidelines for Cleanrooms and Cleanroom Parts Guys.NCATA has been working with the Cleanrooms Association of America to develop a series of air standards, which will be used in conjunction with the NCATE air standards.NCRA will soon publish a set for Cleanroom part guys.NCARA also has a Cleanroom Air Quality Program, which has been in development since the 1970s, Wilson pointed out.NCA also has developed its own Cleanroom Cleaning and Disposal Program.
