Abstract
Secondary aerosolization of microbiological particles deposited on clothing poses a respiratory hazard during undressing procedures in small enclosed spaces. The hazard based on inhalation doses of more than 100 simulant spores (BG) being an infectious dose, was the same whether the cubicle was ventilated or not. Shedding of particles from clothing was greatly reduced by wetting down with either water or a hypochlorite solution.
