Procedure and Skill Validation



Safety for the HazMat worker is not simply a matter of wearing the best protective equipment; it is also the
proper use of the equipment and the proper removal of the equipment. Procedural rigor is as important
as robust technology.

How well do your decontamination and dirty-doffing procedures really work? We can help you find out by:

  • Verifying the effectiveness of your decontamination procedures and dirty-doffing skills using simulated contaminants and controlled test conditions.
  • Fine-tuning your decontamination skills as well as those of your decon team by training with a performance-feedback loop of visible evidence of success or failure.

Fluorescent simulants provide visible evidence
decontamination success or failure.

Our research and services reflect the depth of our experience as response professionals, including both operational deployments and training missions as well as our competencies in developing the science for decontamination. We have learned by doing as well as by studying, and our clients included people on the front lines. We have the procedures, protocols and skills to bring you the training you need.




Too much water and too much pressure can actually
increase the risk of decontamination failure.
