Argon Electronics, the global leader in Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN) and HazMat training systems, this month celebrates 30 years in business and in commemoration has released an eBook that explores the three key types of Chemical Warfare Agent (CWA) training, Live Agent Training; Simulant Agent Training and Simulation training.

“It seems only a relatively short time ago that discussions with Essex County Fire and Rescue Service relating to their desire to enhance radiological hazard training after the Chernobyl reactor accident resulted in Argon entering the field of CBRN simulation” reflected Steven Pike, Managing Director and Founder of Argon. “Fast forward some 28 years, and our training systems, underpinned by numerous patents and commercial relationships with many of the world’s leading detector manufacturers are in use throughout the world to enhance CBRN training”.

To celebrate this achievement, Argon has launched a new website and has also released an eBook which will help those reviewing their CBRN and HazMat training consider some of the options available. “This is our first eBook, and the contribution from David Butler BEM, a former military officer at the UK Defence CBRN Centre Winterbourne Gunner has ensured interesting reading. At a time when hardly a month passes without mention of a CBRN related incident in the news, the need for organisations to ensure they are well prepared has never been greater.” affirmed Pike.

The eBook considers a number of factors relating to the different approaches available to impellent effective Chemical Warfare Agent  training including health and safety, regulatory burdens, the environment and costs.

The new eBook is available to download, free of charge, from the Argon website.
