A cleanroom is an enclosed area in which airborne particles are limited, controlled and eliminated with that space.  The ability of these particles to contaminate or cause a problem is dependent upon the size of the particles.  A cleanroom will deal with contamination by preventing the entry of airborne particles by filtering the air that enters the room, changing the air within the room and will provide an area and a specified procedure when it comes to the cleaning of equipment prior to their entry into the room.

People who are employed to work in clean rooms are usually known as technicians, operators or assemblers.   Clean room assemblers are typically only required to have a high school diploma or GED. Employers often prefer candidates with some college or an associate degree. Given the serious consequences of introducing contamination into a clean room, most businesses have an extensive training program for clean-room workers, often pairing new employees with a mentor for the first few months. The training emphasizes the importance of following all protocols for personal protective equipment and clean-room entry and exit.  Some employers prefer clean room assembler candidates who have earned an industry certification. 

Some clean room assemblers have duties that relate to product inspection. Those involved in product inspection are required to be well-versed in company quality-control processes and product non-conformance standards. Inspectors in clean rooms today often use inspection devices such as light scanners or magnifying viewers in order to help them recognize defective products.

Most clean room jobs, involve following detailed assembly instructions, processes, and procedures to correctly assemble medical devices. Complying with various policies, guidelines, and regulatory requirements. Reporting problems with quality, processes, equipment, or materials to the production supervisor. Completing line clearance, scrap records, training records, and other documentation as required. Maintaining a clean and organized work area to facilitate manufacturing functions.

There are also certain physical requirements that are needed to perform well in the job role.

Cleanroom operators/assemblers are frequently required to stoop, kneel, crouch down or crawl. However, they are required to lift and move things that weigh around 25lbs (and occasionally things that weigh up to 50lbs). Certain vision abilities are also required when working in a cleanroom. These include close vision, depth perception and the ability to adjust your focus.   In addition, cleanroom technicians, operators or assemblers are required to wear gowns, boots, hair restraints and to fully comply with all the protective clothing guidelines.
