Definition abbreviation1

DEFINITION & ABBREVIATION

Field Live Chemical Testing & Training Facility (FLCATF):

An area with a set of buildings and installation primarily intended either for conducting tests and experimental works or for training with real CWA in field condition. It includes areas A, B, C and D.

  • take the samples from the surfaces of CWA working area and places, vehicles, equipment, outfit and other material employed during the works (training) with special emphasise on spots which might have been most contaminated for analytical check of residual contamination;

  • clearly mark the spots within CWA working area surface, and on vehicles, equipment, outfit and other material employed during the works (training), which were not decontaminated properly, and to take appropriate counter-measure in order to remove residual contamination and to resume appropriate level of protection against CWA;

  • after 2 hrs of equipment and material aeration to move within CWA working area with protective mask putting on and not to touch to spots which were contaminated by liquid CWA without having protective gloves, unless efficacy of decontamination is confirmed;

  • organize personnel and hygienic decontamination and routine medical check-up of all personnel participated in the works (training);
