This Radiation Monitoring, Detection and Protection training course will provide you with all the necessary information and abilities to successfully understand both ionising and non-ionising types of radiation materials and, how to effectively manage these radiation materials safely and with confidence to ensure personnel health and safety and/or to prevent potential environmental impacts. Most business sector (industry, commercial and service) organisations use, store, and dispose of radioactive materials within their normal day-to-day business activities.

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. This Radiation Safety training course will develop your ability to critically assess exposure risks associated with the use, storage, and disposal of radiation materials, at all stages of administrative, operational and laboratory activities.

This Radiation Monitoring, Detection and Protection training course will highlight:

  • The various types and harmful properties of ionising and non-ionising radiation
  • The importance and how to effectively carry out radiation exposure assessments
  • Understanding key radiation safety management and protection principles
  • The biological effects of radiation exposure to the human body
  • Compliance with the regulation bodies’ requirements.

The objectives of this Energy Training Centre training course are to ensure you gain detailed information and competency for safely managing radioactive sources and materials in the workplace. This training course has the following key objectives for radiation safety management:

At the end of this Radiation Monitoring, Detection and Protection training course, you will learn to:

  • How to carry out radiation exposure Survey & Assessments?
  • How to define the types of radiation?
  • How to determine the biological effects of radiation exposure on personnel?
  • How to develop and implement radiation control procedures?
  • How to transport, transfer and dispose of radiation materials?
  • Understanding Radiation Units & Fundamental of Measuring, Monitoring for Site, Facilities & individuals

The participants will learn in a lively, enthusiastic, and exciting style through inspiring presentation tools and interactive techniques. They will participate in practical team exercises, typical case studies, and open discussion forums related to their own organisation’s operational activities. This training course combines instruction on the latest developments with best practices for environmental compliance including real-world case studies, video dramatizations, self-assessments, participatory discussions, and many exercises to make the training course an exciting and enriching learning experience.

By successfully managing radiation safety an organization will ensure they effectively control radiation exposure risks and, therefore will protect their business reputation.

The organisational impact will be:

  • Staff being able to critically assess and control risks from radioactive materials
  • Improved safe control of radiation material use, storage, and disposal
