Sealed Sources & X-rays

Radiation Protection Supervisor Course (2-day)

Radioactive sealed sources are used for controlling a wide range of industrial processes, typically measuring fill-level, flow rate or density of a particular material or product. Sources of much lower activity are used as calibration standards in research or simply for checking the performance of a radiation monitor.

Course Programme

Industrial X-ray devices span a great range of applications including process measurement, materials analysis and inspection, and security scanning.  Increasingly, X-rays are employed for fill-level and foreign body detection in the food and drinks industries.

Regardless of the application it remains good practice for the employer to appoint one or more Radiation Protection Supervisors (RPSs) to assist in managing the radiation hazard and supervise any work with the equipment in accordance with the Local Rules.

Designed for those using radioactive sealed sources or X-rays in industrial processes or research, this course focuses on external radiation exposures, practical protection measures and the RPS duties.

  • Hazards and risks presented by sealed sources & X-rays.
  • Radiological Protection during routine operations
  • Radiation monitoring
