Radiation Safety - Safely Working with Radioactive Materials

Monday 18 Nov 2019

  • Duration: One Week
  • City: Madrid
  • Fees: 3900 GBP

Introduction

This highly-intensive training course will provide you with all the required information and abilities to successfully comprehend both ionising and non-ionising types of radiation materials and, how to effectively handle these radiation materials safely and with confidence to ensure personnel health and safety and/or to prevent potential environmental effects.

Most business sector (industry, commercial and service) organisations use, store and dispose of radioactive materials within their normal day-to-day business activities, these business sectors include:
– Oil and gas industry (offshore and onshore facilities)
– Medical facilities (hospitals and clinics)
– Service industries (laboratories, etc.)
– Manufacturing companies
– Plus, many other business sectors

Personnel need to be fully informed, trained and monitored to ensure they are not exposed to radiation materials during their work activities and/or when using, storing or disposing of radioactive sources.

Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will learn:

– How to carry out radiation exposure assessments?
– How to distinguish the two types of radiation?
– How to determine the effects of radiation exposure on personnel?
– How to enhance and implement radiation control procedures?
– How to transport, transfer and dispose of radiation materials?
