Proper decontamination, or decon, is just as much a part of safely using hazardous materials as personal protection equipment and work practices. This online training video shows workers the value of proper decontamination practices and how to execute those practices to maintain a safe work environment and a healthy lifestyle.
Decontamination procedures are mandated by OSHA at all job sites where workers might be exposed to hazardous materials. The program addresses those necessary decon procedures focusing on exclusion zones, contamination reduction zones and decontamination equipment.
The program shows proper decontamination procedures with a step-by-step look at decon activities within an average contamination reduction corridor. The video then explains how decon extends to a medical surveillance examination to determine a worker's state of health following decontamination and what to do if someone is injured prior to proper decontamination.
Decontamination is the final step in safely working with hazardous materials, and this online program shows workers how to ensure this pivotal step is properly and thoroughly completed to eliminate the spread of hazardous materials.
