Event Details

This highly-interactive 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.


At the end of this course, participants will learn:

  • How to carry out radiation exposure assessments
  • How to define the two types of radiation
  • How to determine the effects of radiation exposure on personnel
  • How to develop and implement radiation control procedures
  • How to transport, transfer and dispose of radiation materials



Fundamentals of Radiation Safety

  • What is radiation?
  • Types of radiation sources (ionising & non-ionising)
  • Understanding risk from radiation
  • Man-Made radiation materials
  • Radiation materials used in industry


Effects of Radiation on the Human Body

  • Units of radiation exposure and dose concentrations
  • Radiation effects on Human Body
  • Categorising radiation exposure effects
  • Exposure to radiation (acute & delayed)
  • Dose Limits of acceptable radiation exposure


Radiation Exposure Risk Assessment

  • Key exposure assessment elements
  • Determining potential radiation exposure pathways
  • Identifying radiation exposure and short and long term effects
  • Evaluating exposure durations and concentrations
  • Estimating radioactive chemical and/or particulate impacts


Radiation Management & Control Procedures

  • Security of radioactive materials
  • Radiation exposure monitoring and detection methods
  • Radiation protection solutions (time, distance & shielding)
  • Laboratory radiation safety processes
  • Radiation precautions and safety procedures


Radiation Management Principles

  • Waste disposal of radioactive materials
  • Transport and transfer of radioactive materials
  • Safe procurement and quarantine of radiation materials



The training methodology combines lectures, discussions, group exercises and illustrations. Participants will gain both theoretical and practical knowledge of the topics. The emphasis is on the practical application of the topics and as a result participant will go back to the workplace with both the ability and the confidence to apply the techniques learned to their duties.
