RPS Radiation Safety Training - sealed sourcesRadioactive 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.

Industrial X-ray devices span a great range of applications including process measurement, materials analysis, 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 a Radiation Protection Supervisor (RPS) to assist in managing the radiation hazard and supervise any work with the sources or X-ray unit 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.

Learn about:

  • Hazards and risks presented by sealed sources & X-rays.
  • Radiological Protection during routine operations
  • Radiation monitoring
  • Accidents involving a source
  • The regulatory requirements to ensure all exposures are kept 'as low as reasonably practicable'.

Evening syndicates study real industrial incidents for reporting the following day.

"The course was professionally run and very beneficial and the tutors did a fantastic job of making the subject interesting."
R.R. Thermo Fisher Scientific
"A very well organised and well presented course. The course covered everything that I consider relevant to be able to perform my RPS duties in a confident manner. The hotel was comfortable and it was very convenient to hold the course in the same location."
I.T. Long Clawson Dairy
"Course was ideally paced and informative without too much detail.  Very professional, notes, equipment and presentation etc. Evening meal was excellent!"
A.B. Kellogg's
"The toutors displayed an excellent level of understanding of the subject matter.  As a thorough introduction to radiation hazards and the role of the RPS, I found the course to be very well arranged.  The relatively short time allotted to each subject kept the course moving along at a good speed, with a good level of detail."
P.W. STFC Daresbury Laboratory
"Overall I found the course was a good introduction to radiation as they took into account that not everyone is an expert on the subject. The lecturers were very knowledgeable on their chosen subjects and delivered them well."
G.M National Physical Laboratory
"The course was very good.  From knowing almost nothing about radiation,  I feel I gained enough knowledge to be able to be a competent Radiation Protection Supervisor"
