Course on Consumables and Garments by IEST
May '09
A cleanroom environment represents a significant investment in the protection of the products produced. Employees who work in this environment are the most significant source risk to the integrity of the cleanroom. The effective implementation of a system of protocols and products that will control this source of contamination is essential to the successful operation of any cleanroom. This course will provide a comprehensive look at the materials systems and protocols required to achieve the level of control required.

Course: Consumables and Garments
Instructor: Mike Rataj
Venue: Burbank, California
Date: June 17 and 18, 2009

Topics will include cleanroom garments with sections on materials of construction, required workmanship, processing and maintenance, garment testing, fit and sizing, and specialty garments; consumable products and accessories with sections on gloves, masks, goggles, aprons, sleeves, and non-garment items; and garment microbiology with sections on environmental monitoring and sterilization.

Included with the course will be a copy of IEST-RP-CC003.3, IEST-RP-CC004.3, and IEST-RP-CC005.3.

The instructor, Mike Rataj, has been involved in the contamination control industry for 12 years since taking over as QA Manager for ARAMARK's Chicago cleanroom plant. Rataj holds an MS in biology from the University of Illinois and an MBA in operations management from the Illinois Institute of Technology Stuart School of Business. He has served as IEST Membership Vice President and is chair of Working Groups CC003 and CC023.

The Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology (IEST), founded in 1953, is a multidisciplinary, international society whose members are internationally recognized for their contributions to the environmental sciences in the areas of contamination control in electronics manufacturing and pharmaceutical processes; design, test, and evaluation of commercial and military equipment; and product reliability issues associated with commercial and military systems.
