Life Sciences Radiation Safety Training
Ensure regulatory compliance in your workplace with radiation safety training.
Working with ionising radiation sources presents many safety issues. Organisations must ensure radiation levels remain low and are compliant with regulations. To achieve this, all members of staff must understand the risks involved with working with radiation sources and how to manage these potential risks.
Training in risk management is a vital part of any organisation’s health and safety policy. In many cases, it is also required by Health and Safety Regulations for those working with or near radiation sources.
