Process of Decontamination and its Purpose
Posted Jun 28, 2017 | Hits: 14 | Stock No: #150559
Decontamination is the process of cleansing an object or substance to remove contaminants such as micro-organisms or hazardous materials, including chemicals, radioactive substances, and infectious diseases.
Chemical decontamination becomes necessary when hazardous chemicals cause harm. Some situations may be acute such as an explosion or spill. Immediate action is required. Other situations are slow and consistent such as seeping chemicals or leaking packaging.
The main purpose of decontamination at a hazardous materials emergency is to limit the spread of contaminants from the release area, or "hot zone," to include the cleaning of responders and their equipment.
