Contamination and toxicant characteristics -- Emergency decontamination -- Decontamination procedures -- Developing a decontamination policy -- Laws and standards. "This book belongs in the library of every hazardous materials emergency responder. This is the only book devoted entirely to the crucial subject of decontamination. All the facts are here, including a simple method of decontaminating people and equipment, and they are represented clearly and simply. Readers develop an understanding of why decontamination is vital not only to the health and safety of an affected individual but to emergency responders and the entire community. Real-life experiences described in case studies can be the source of lively discussion and learning."--Jacket.
