SP1320 - Radiation Safety

This course will have the learner explore the health and safety concerns related to working with industrial radiography radiation sources.  The primary intent of the course is to introduce the learner to safe handling, standard operating principles and procedures and emergency operation principles and procedures for industrial radiography exposure devices.  Through the principle of ALARA (As Low As Reasonable Achievable) and the concepts of Time Distance and Shielding this course will prepare the learner for calculating and verifying working radiation dose rates, accumulated dosages, safe distances, and shielding requirements. The relevant sections of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Act and Regulations will be explained in detail. Successful completion of this course will provide the learner the opportunity to further pursue the CEDO Certified Exposure Device Operators designation through the NDT (Non-Destructive Testing) Certifying Agency of CANMET Materials Technology Laboratory, Natural Resources Canada in accordance with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission Regulatory Guide G229.
