• hazardous
  • During hydrocarbon production, coprecipitation or electrochemical deposition of radioactive elements such as radium, polonium, and lead can generate potentially hazardous NORM. (slb.com)
  • The mobility of these units allows onsite, point-of-generation decontamination, eliminating the risks involved in transporting hazardous radioactive equipment or waste. (slb.com)
  • The composition of decontamination foams is essentially water and a surfactant, creating an aqueous film forming foam that various reactive chemicals are then added, diminishing the amount of contaminants adhering to a surface and forming less hazardous products. (wikipedia.org)
  • nuclear
  • The possibility of using nuclear weapons in war is usually divided into two subgroups, each with different effects and potentially fought with different types of nuclear armaments. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some predict, however, that a limited war could potentially " escalate " into a full-scale nuclear war. (wikipedia.org)
  • More pessimistic predictions argue that a full-scale nuclear war could potentially bring about the extinction of the human race, or at least its near extinction, with only a relatively small number of survivors (mainly in remote areas) and a reduced quality of life and life expectancy for centuries afterward.

  • area
  • Dofficers (Decontamination officers in the "doffing" or disrobing area) are often police or military personnel, ready to handle potentially unruly persons who refuse to cooperate with first responders. (wikipedia.org)
  • Decon foam is also useful as an area denial weapons medium for crowd control, e.g. to make the ground slippery, as well as to reduce visibility (as a fog), such as with the CASCAD product. (wikipedia.org)
  • solutions
  • In addition to chemical solutions, the EXKAL service team employs mobile decontamination units comprising tanks, cradles, pumps, and interlinking bunds. (slb.com)
  • several
  • Similar in toxicity to the death cap (A. phalloides) and destroying angels of Europe (A. virosa) and eastern North America (A. bisporigera), it is a potentially deadly fungus responsible for several poisonings in California. (wikipedia.org)
  • workers
  • Could potentially expose workers to these agents, e.g., sifting of soil samples (aerosolizing the soil) when the soil is known to contain an infectious agent or is from a region where there are infectious agents endemic in the soil (Bacillus anthracis is endemic in parts of the Southwest in the United States, for example).
