1.32 Hygienic Maintenance.

It is most important for all contractors, especially those engaged in maintenance operations who may be required to work in areas where computing equipment is being handled, to recognise that the way they organise and conduct their work can present a threat to the product. The threat arises from several sources:


Accidental contamination of the product or equipment by foreign bodies for example: flakes of paint, dust, nuts, bolts, screws, gaskets and 'O' Rings etc.


Accidental contamination by failure to operate according to a reasonable code of practical hygiene.


Use of unsuitable materials to lubricate or otherwise treat the surfaces of equipment.

It is therefore essential that due consideration is given to the way the work is to be done before starting, so that adequate precautions are taken to prevent contamination from all foreseeable sources.
