Radioactive material and radiation producing machines are used every day by thousands of people. Your business probably depends on them. The safe use of these items is important to healthcare, research, education, manufacturing, power production, construction, and other industries. What’s more, training workers is important to ensure these uses may continue to benefit the public. Improper use of radiation and radioactive material causes concern that people and the environment will be harmed. Training workers to use these sources safely protects the workers, public and our environment and allows their continued use in these important industries. Providing health and safety information and training helps you to:

  • Ensure you or your employees work safely with sources of radiation and comply with regulatory requirements;
  • Inform workers on methods to employ to protect themselves and assure they are not unnecessarily exposed to radiation by the work they do;
  • Develop a positive health and safety culture, where safe and healthy working becomes second nature to everyone;
  • Determine how you can manage health and safety better;
  • Meet your regulatory responsibilities to protect the health and safety of your employees.

Effective training:

  • Will contribute towards making your employees competent in health and safety;
  • Can help your business avoid the distress that accidents cause;
  • Can help you avoid the financial costs of accidents and noncompliance with regulatory requirements.

Federal and state regulations require that users of radiation sources provide information, instruction, and training to workers to ensure, as far as is practicable, the health and safety of your employees, the public and the environment.
