The way that the crew operate and behave will be of vital importance both in controlling, and in making use of,  microbes aboard the Space Station.   The crew will be trained in the use of particular procedures that will relate to:

  • personal hygiene
  • food preparation and consumption rules
  • waste management
  • engineering maintenance procedures
  • Space Station orientation and steering
  • working methods and precautions when handling bio-hazardous material
  • routine medicare
  • emergency or contingency procedures in case of the need for evacuation through illness
Following these procedures will reduce the risk of microbial infection and other potential problems that could result from microbial attack.
