CLEAPSS Radiation protection supervisor training RJ621 / C01
This hands on one-day course is for the school Radiation Protection Supervisor (RPS), i.e. the person responsible for managing the safe storage, use and monitoring of radioactive sources in the science department. The RPS will normally be a member of the teaching staff, often the Head of Physics. Technicians may only attend if they are accompanying a teacher from their school – under some circumstances a technician may be able to attend without a teacher for information purposes only - a technician can not be the RPS for their school. Please contact CLEAPSS on 01895 25496 if you would like to understand more about this.
The course includes practical hands on experiences to improve confidence and knowledge when handling radioactive materials. It aims to provide answers to questions frequently asked on the CLEAPSS helpline and provides opportunities for delegates to raise issues and ask specific questions. The course is based on the CLEAPSS guide L93 Managing Ionising Radiations and Radioactive Substances.
Please note - All participants should be CLEAPSS members, non CLEAPSS members will face an additional charge. If unsure, please call 01895 25496 to check your membership status.
Who is the course leader?
- use current legislation and guidance to use, monitor, store and dispose of radioactive sources safely
