Radiation safety training from SGS - ensure regulatory compliance in your workplace.

Pipelines in sunset

Working with radiation sources presents many safety issues. To ensure that radiation levels in your workplace remain low and compliant with regulations, all members of staff working with ionizing radiation sources must understand the risks involved and how to minimize them. Training can help them to achieve an understanding of the precautions required for working with or near radiation sources. In many cases, personnel who work with radiation sources must show proof of appropriate training as a condition of license. We offer a wide range of radiation training courses to ensure that your staff members understand and employ correct procedures and comply with licensing conditions.
