BMC Training provides on 19 Jan 2020 Radiation Safety - Safely Working with Radioactive Materials course [Safety Training] in London,UK


This highly-interactive training course will provide you with all the necessary information and abilities to successfully understand both ionising and non-ionising types of radiation materials and, how to effectively manage these radiation materials safely and with confidence to ensure personnel health and safety and/or to prevent potential environmental impacts.

Most business sector (industry, commercial and service) organisations use, store and dispose of radioactive materials within their normal day-to-day business activities, these business sectors include:

  • Oil and gas industry (offshore and onshore facilities)
  • Medical facilities (hospitals and clinics)
  • Service industries (laboratories, etc,.)
  • Manufacturing companies
  • Plus, many other business sectors
  • Personnel need to be fully informed, trained and monitored to ensure they are not exposed to radiation materials during their work activities and/or when using, storing or disposing of radioactive sources.

This course will highlight:

  • The various types and harmful properties of ionising and non-ionising radiation
  • The importance and how to effectively carry out radiation exposure assessments
  • Understanding key radiation safety management and protection principles
  • The biological effects of radiation exposure to the human body


At the end of this course, participants will learn to:

  • How to carry out radiation exposure assessments
  • How to define the two types of radiation
  • How to determine the effects of radiation exposure on personnel
  • How to develop and implement radiation control procedures
  • How to transport, transfer and dispose of radiation materials
