Did you know we start to mitigate risk in our lives as early as 6 months old?
That’s right: at 6 months old, an infant can recognise a stranger and knows - in their gut - that the unfamiliar person could pose a risk. The following cries are the baby’s form of risk mitigation.
But that is exactly how important risk mitigation is: we start practicing it and recognising the importance of it before we even have conscious thoughts. It’s an instinct.
As we grow, risk mitigation becomes much more comprehensive and different. We practice it in almost every area of our lives: we wear a helmet on a bike, wash our hands before we eat, clean the counters when we cook, etc. We gain the ability to determine what we deem as a risk - and how to mitigate it, even if we do so subconsciously.
Then some of us grow up to work in cleanrooms and we learn the true importance of risk mitigation - and the lives that can be at stake if we don’t pay enough attention to it. Other people’s lives rely on our risk mitigation instincts and knowledge.
We’re here to support you in that endeavor. As clean air experts, we know there are two primary risks in a cleanroom: contamination and data integrity. When either of those are impacted in just about any cleanroom, major problems ensue. That is why we want to talk about a few ways to mitigate risks to your data integrity or contamination risks.
