Pharmaceutical Hygiene - Part 2 (Contamination Control)
The pharmaceutical industry has one of the most strictly controlled manufacturing environments. Consequently the need for pharmaceutical hygiene is vital to ensure compliance with the principles of GMP and the manufacture of medicines and healthcare products which are fit for purpose and safe to use.
The prevention of product contamination pervades the complete production cycle, including personnel, premises, equipment, production materials and anything that can be a potential source of contamination of the end product.
This series of three training DVDs examines, in simple terms, the most common causes of product contamination and methods of control.
They are designed primarily for the induction of new employees. They could also be used as a timely reminder for experienced personnel.
The aim is to draw attention to the principle causes of product contamination, with some guidelines on how to prevent it.
- Raw materials as a potential source of contamination, and what to look for on delivery.
- Manufacturing processes and methods of working.
- Storage conditions, movement controls and pest control.
- Water as a potential source of contamination and water treatment systems.
- Environmental and particulate contamination.
- The risk of cross-contamination.
