Decontamination and Remediation

Decontamination and Remediation

Thousands of hectares of land in Europe undergo decontamination and remediation every year. This includes “brownfields” – areas of land that have been traditionally used for industrial or agricultural purposes, forestry or mining activities, and military or armament sites from the First and Second World Wars.

A frightening number of contaminants

Often harsh environments to work in, decontaminated land sites can present various hazards at various stages that require of a garment not only reliable and robust protection but a high level of comfort and a good fit to enable wearers to perform at their best.
