As the manufacture of new toxic pharmaceutical products grows, it is necessary to handle more compounds of increasing toxicity in the workplace. For this reason, and because the expectation of better employee protection and improved working procedures is growing, there is an increasing demand for better containment systems and a better understanding of those systems. The selection of a particular containment system for a specific containment operation can be a difficult decision, due to the extensive choice of technology available. Providing a structured approach to the selection process, this guide focuses on the needs of the process industries, and in particular the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector. It covers a wide range of containment equipment, suitable for materials of low to high toxicity, as well as different scales of operation and different transfer steps. This equipment varies from simple airflow control devices, to enclosures that restrict exposures to well below a microgram per cubic metre averaged over a working day.
