Safety and Cleanroom Solutions area

Laboratories across the UK are working at the forefront of scientific innovation in a fast-moving regulatory landscape. The need for correctly fitting PPE, hazardous material storage and suitable sterile apparel is critically important to ensure staff safety and legal compliance.

We are excited to announce Science World 2019 in Leicester will host a dedicated interactive Safety and Cleanroom Solutions area where visitors can view and demonstrate a wide selection of new safety and cleanroom products.

There will be opportunity to attend a number of short safety seminars by industry specialists from global brands and to meet the Safety Team from the Fisher Scientific channel, who will be available to help explain new safety regulations, correct fitting and training of PPE usage and showcase the latest in controlled environment protective equipment and apparel.

Safety seminars will take place as follows:-

  • Contec. 11.15-11.45. “Impact of the EU Biocidal Products Regulation 528/2012 on cleanroom disinfection”.
  • Asecos. 13.00-13.45. “Storage and Handling of Hazardous Materials”.
  • Ansell. 14.45-15.15. “Transition to new PPE regulations – Steps to take”.

Keynote Speakers

Hannah Critchlow

Dr Hannah Critchlow is the Science Outreach Fellow at Magdalene College, University of Cambridge, and has been named a Top 100 UK Scientist by the Science Council for her work in science communication. She is listed as one of the University of Cambridge's “inspirational and successful women in science” and appears regularly on TV, radio and at festivals to discuss and explore the brain. More recently she was elected to the Fellowship of the European Dana Alliance for the Brain in recognition of her work in neuroscience public engagement activities.

In the past year Hannah has co-presented BBC's Tomorrow's World Live, The Secret Lives of 4 & 5 Year Olds and a BBC 2 TV series Family Brain Games with Dara Ó Briain. Hannah also helped judge the Wellcome Trust Book Prize and published her first book Consciousness: A Ladybird Expert Guide with Penguin and second book The Science of Fate with Hodder. A BBC Radio 4 documentary exploring the scientific concept of destiny was presented by Hannah to accompany this latest book.

Her talk at World Science will explore how a revolution in technologies is helping us to unravel the mysteries of the mind. How is consciousness generated? Is our fate written into our minds? How much free will do we actually have? Prepare to illuminate your thoughts and have your brainwaves read in this interactive journey through the mind.


Jamie Gallagher

Jamie Gallagher is an award-winning scientist and science communicator. He spends his days sharing his love of science and helping others to do the same. His work has taken him around the world, from skyscrapers of Hong Kong to tents in the African bush. As well as speaking live to thousands of people each year he’s had work published in 19 different countries and has contributed to a number of television shows, radio programmes and museum exhibitions.

Jamie’s work has seen him named as one of the “100 leading practising scientists in the UK” by the Science Council and he is recognised as one of the “175 faces of Chemistry” by the Royal Society of Chemistry. He won the International 3 Minute Thesis Competition and was a previous Famelab UK runner up.

Interested in the areas where the different sciences overlap, Jamie has a PhD in Chemistry and Electrical Engineering and a degree in Physics. He specialises in nanotechnology for renewable energy generation from wearable electronic devices to deep space exploration.

Jamie will be joining Science World to uncover the secrets of nanotechnology. Today nanotechnology is influencing almost every area of our lives – technology, food, health and sport. But just 45 years ago the word nanotechnology didn’t even exit. Jamie will chart the meteoric rise of this tiny tech as we separate fact from fantasy.
