Pre conference course G. Operations, Maintenance and Management of Containment Level 2/3 Facilities
Trainees may do either Day 1 (Level 2) or both days (Level 2 and 3)
Gilles Tremblay, Chris Kiley, Maria Fink
Level/quality of Operations and Maintenance (OM) expectations under guidelines, best practices, lessons learned and how they vary on a regional basis
Understanding the different ways (pros and cons) of delivering OM services, where can you “skimp” and where can you not.
Why a system/equipment criticality matrix is key in focusing OM dollars and efforts
The unique maintenance challenges and examples for different types of equipment, systems that support containment level 2/3 environments.
Review some OM cost models from various facilities
- Understand the concept of containment and its limitations and be able to discuss the most important types of containment, and what are the critical elements (equipment) that support containment.
- Understand the basic systems (Containment barriers and elements, HVAC, BAS, etc.), and the commissioning and validation processes that establish baseline operational performance on year 1 of operation and how the right maintenance strategy can maintain operational reliability and performance on year 20 and beyond.
- Understand the impact on biosafety and biosecurity when using critical containment elements/equipment and advise on choice, installation, validation, certification, and maintenance. “Based on the operational model - where should you put your limited operational euros.”
- How a robust O&M process can provide operational assurance and documented evidence in implementing a biological waste management plan.
