Improve Hygiene, Reduce Slip Fall Risks & Speed Up Maintenance Programs through Innovations in Floor & Wall Coating Systems

03/22/2017, 2:15 PM - 3:00 PM

Meeting Room 3


A critical consideration in the design and construction of pharmaceutical and medical research facilities is the floor, wall and coving systems chosen to protect the different operational areas found within the building. Aside from providing a protective coating that prevents the underlying concrete slab from wear, static charge and chemical attack, floor and wall systems must meet strict hygiene and safety protocols in line with Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs). As a major building component, floor and wall systems should be hygienic, durable and impervious as well as offer a safe, non-slip profile underfoot - so as to prevent slip/fall accidents. In addition, systems must meet individual scheduling and budgetary requirements so as to reduce the downtime associated with routine maintenance programs, This seminar will explore how new innovations in resinous flooring can help to improve hygiene standards, reduce slip fall risks & speed up maintenance programs. .

Learning Objectives

  1. Learning Objectives 1. Explore GMP, FDA & EU compliance & regulatory guidelines surrounding the use of floor, wall and coving materials in pharmaceutical and medical research facilities as well as identify typical reasons for floor failure and any subsequent litigation. 2. Explore a specification framework to assist in the correct selection of safe and sanitary floor, wall and coving materials in the different areas of the facility, based on typical service criteria, as well as identify new polymer floor chemistries and technology providing enhanced protection or added value benefits to pharmaceutical clients. 3. Explore scheduling and budgetary issues associated with floor installation, including materials that can minimize downtime or accelerate construction programs, as well as identify a lifecycle cost analysis, which considers all costs associated with the floor over its lifespan, with the view to reducing capital and maintenance expenditures over time.
