Individual and collective protection are crucial in environments affected and potentially contaminated by CBRN hazards, ensuring that HazMat teams, first responders and military units can operate normally in this type of scenario of a CBRN attack or dispersion.
Operators need to be provided an individual respiratory protection system and protective clothing against the CBRN hazards.
Collective protection is afforded by facilities or systems equipped with air filtration devices and air locks which provide personnel a CBRN hazard-free environment for performing critical work and obtaining rest and relief in order to sustain the ongoing operation.
This webinar is approx. 30 min long and will give you a practical and easy-to-follow approach on the topic of “CBRN Protection”, with useful hints for your daily activities!
