Decontamination Procedures

Heavy Equipment

A steam cleaner will be utilized to decontaminate all heavy equipment, trucks, and tools. If it is deemed necessary by subject matter experts, disinfectant may also need to be applied.

Personnel should exercise caution when using a steam cleaner. The high-pressure steam can cause severe burns and skin lesions.

Protective gloves, splash glasses, hearing protection, hard hats, steel-toed boots, and polycoated Tyvek® suits or rain gear will be worn when using steam cleaners.
All water and solvents from the decontamination process will be captured and containerized in separate 55-gallon drums labeled with the type of "decon fluids" for proper future disposal.
