There are many benefits to having a decontamination unit on site. First of all, dirt is kept to a minimum around site entrances, as workers arrive and leave clean. Any muck or dirt from on-site is maintained in the first area of the decon unit. Uniforms and overalls can be left ready to be cleaned or to be worn again when the employee returns. This area can be furnished with lockers and changing rooms if required.
One of the most important issues solved here by using the DCU, is the transfer of hazardous material or substances. By going through the staged process anything that may have been picked up or uniform or workwear will be contained on the site. All PMBUK units are fully HSE compliant and are available in a configuration to suit most sites.
