• contaminants
  • The purpose of decontamination is to prevent the spread of micro-organisms and other noxious contaminants that may threaten the health of human beings or animals, or damage the environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Decontamination is an essential job duty of hazmat responders as it protects victims from harmful reactions to the contaminants. (wikipedia.org)
  • There are five different types of dry decontamination, each of which can be used in conjunction with others to remove up to 100% of all suspected contaminants: Scraping Absorbent Materials Adsorbent Materials Vacuuming Pressurized Air Scraping is a process of decontamination in which the bulk contaminant is removed from the victim or environment using a spatula, wood tongue depressor, or other handheld implement. (wikipedia.org)
  • In addition, dry decon operations are expedited by allowing for the quick removal of contaminants from the victim's skin, which reduces the amount of time a victim is in contact with the contamination (which therefore reduces the potential harm caused). (wikipedia.org)
  • victims
  • Under these circumstances, mass decon can take on some features of mass arrests, with victims forcibly rounded up, then treated inside impromptu detention areas. (wikipedia.org)
  • physical
  • Research papers on the work have been presented at various technical gatherings of the chem-bio defense community, most recently at the National Research Council Workshop on Chem-bio Warfare Physical Protection and Decontamination in Washington, D.C., Jan. 25-26. (sandia.gov)
  • A different type of physical decontamination involves washing the contaminant away using another fluid like water, an alcohol, or freon. (faqs.org)
  • rescue
  • Decontamination showers can be used as mobile sanitary facilities during clean-up of accidents and rescue operations or training and field house use. (grainger.com)
  • In some situations volunteers may be needed to augment or replace rescue/security personnel to help maintain calm and/or assist with decontamination procedures. (wikipedia.org)
  • RELEASE
  • Decon Records began by collaborating with the west coast collective Project Blowed to release projects from Aceyalone of the Freestyle Fellowship, such as Love & Hate which features production from El-P and RJD2. (wikipedia.org)
  • XXL singled out Roc Marciano's Decon Records release, Reloaded, as the "Best Slept-On Album" of that year. (wikipedia.org)
  • procedures
  • The decontamination procedures employed will depend on both the nature of the contaminant and on what is to be decontaminated. (wisegeek.com)
  • Military groups, church groups, Boy Scouts groups, Girl Guides, businesses, etc. can prepare for possible contaminations by performing drills of decontamination procedures. (wikipedia.org)
