X-ray Scanners

RPS & Operators (X-ray Scanners)

X-ray scanners and fill-level gaugesX-ray scanning equipment is used widely on production lines (fill-level and foreign body detection) and in the security industry.  Although most machines are inherently safe through the provision of shielding, guarding and other safety features, there is the potential for higher levels of exposure due to leakage X-rays or abuse of the equipment.

X-ray devices are therefore subject to the requirements of the IRR99 and, whilst there is no statutory basis for appointing a Radiation Protection Supervisor,  such an appointment does represent good practice for the management of radiation safety.  The RPS is available for consultation with staff and acts as the focal point for all radiation safety matters in relation to the X-ray device.

How safe is X-ray inspection of food?

This training is designed for the RPS, other safety personnel and operators of the scanner who should be instructed in basic radiation protection principles.
