BACS Cleanroom Cleaning Services and Products —
Part of Your Quality Management System

Contamination control is easier than detection because you cannot test for every impurity. Even if a product does not come in direct contact with the cleanroom environment, it is still influenced by it. Convection and circulating air can carry particulates and microbes, while handling can transfer residue. Thorough cleaning and disinfection of the environment minimises the potential for contaminants to adversely affect product quality.

BACS cleanroom cleaning services operate on a “Plan, Do, Check” philosophy to reduce your risk of contamination.

  • Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are written protocols put in place to ensure that steps towards minimising contamination are being followed. Because SOPs define the level of facility cleanliness, BACS cleaners are trained to understand and adhere to them precisely.
  • Schedules dictate how often a specific cleaning procedure is performed. BACS cleanroom services are available on a routine, periodic or project basis.
  • Cleaning involves the execution of an SOP to a defined schedule. Using professionally trained technical cleaners guarantees a more uniform result by reducing cleaner-to-cleaner variability.
  • Validation confirms that cleaning procedures are effective. BACS reviews validation tests and uses this information for continuous improvement.
  • Compliance is the fulfilment of every procedural and documentary requirement. BACS cleaners perform their duties according to the SOPs then complete all checklists and log books to maintain your certification.
  • Periodic auditing guarantees all processes produce the required results. BACS cleaners undergo routine performance checks in areas such as cleaning technique, chemical and equipment use, knowledge base and documentation skills.

BACS Preparation —
Ensuring quality, consistency and results

In-House Training

BACS has created a Cleanroom Cleaning Accreditation Programme that all cleaners must complete before working in a cleanroom. Our customers are assured that every BACS cleaner on their site is properly trained, assessed, accredited and audited. BACS training covers all aspects of critical environments including:

  • what a cleanroom is and how it operates
  • different types and classes of cleanrooms (sterile, non-sterile, particle-sensitive, ESD-sensitive, TGA registered, ISO/GMP classifications, etc.)
  • where contaminants come from
  • the importance of following SOPs
  • proper cleaning technique and equipment preparation
  • safe use and correct concentrations of cleaning and disinfecting chemicals
  • correct gowning procedures
  • appropriate cleanroom behaviour and hygiene
  • the relevance of all documentation and its accurate completion

External Courses

The BACS management team regularly attends industry seminars and trade shows to ensure they are current on ISO standards, cleanroom protocols and new technologies. BACS shares this knowledge with our staff through ongoing training programmes.

BACS Cleanroom

BACS has an in-house cleanroom for training cleaners in proper cleaning methods and gowning procedures, repackaging products and preparing and storing equipment.

Safety

BACS adheres to both recommended and required Federal and State WHS regulations to ensure our workers conduct cleaning in a safe fashion. BACS consults with field staff at least once a month and considers this feedback an important component of our Safety Management Plan. BACS also holds a current $20 million public liability insurance policy.
