The need for haz-mat training is a necessity now that the prospect of a deliberate or unintentional hazardous material/radiological release or CBRN attack is increasingly recognized as an acute global challenge. However, the responsibility for effective response remains with individual nations, national, regional and local Government agencies and corporate entities.
It is essential that organisations develop their emergency response procedures and resources to respond to and mitigate the consequences of such threats to life, infrastructure and the environment.
Early detection and response is critical, as is the quality and accuracy of information flow. Ensuring personnel understand how to correctly operate, interpret and report readings of Detection, Identification and Monitoring (DIM) equipment is essential to maintaining a capability to respond to a CBRN/HazMat incident.
Argon is responding to these requirements with innovative tools and strategies that will enhance existing individual training and collective exercise programs to facilitate the delivery of what we call Real Experience Training™ (RET) – training so real, participants forget it’s an exercise.
