Initially Takeda were searching for a solution that would prevent the spreading of dust by the footwear of employees and forklift trucks in dusty production areas, such as weighing rooms. Furthermore, Takeda were looking to reduce the spread of contamination under the footwear of employees entering from production areas to the cloakroom/changing areas and back in the other direction. After a site survey by Dycem’s contamination control representative, the Dycem flooring systems were installed into the production corridor under door openings leading to the weighing room. There were further installations into the
cloakrooms/changing areas for male and female employees in Takeda’s grey clean zone. After installation it was quoted that ‘Dycem flooring systems have considerably limited the spread of contamination by employees moving from the production area to the cloakrooms/changing areas. The installation of Dycem has resulted in a sizeable reduction of the quantities of dust transported by employees exiting dusty areas, i.e. the weighing rooms.
Finally, the installation of Dycem has reduced floor contamination, and also the effort required and costs of maintaining cleanness of the remaining production areas’.
