Immediately following contamination it is essential to stabilise the condition of affected equipment and the environment where the equipment is located, in order to minimise the risk of further contamination or damage. Following stabilisation a detailed inspection of the equipment can be carried out to assess the degree of damage and recommend recovery options.
Beware of equipment representatives who will attempt to prove equipment is damaged beyond economical repair by switching it on to verify that it is non functional. Any short circuit damage that occurs as a result of the equipment being switched on prior to decontamination is directly attributable to the person who switches the equipment on and is not generally a consequence of the event that caused the contamination. If the equipment is properly decontaminated prior to being switched on, then short circuit damage will not occur.
