Radiation Safety in Research & Healthcare

Many EH&S professionals do not work with radiation on a regular basis. Those outside the academic healthcare setting are not usually exposed to many aspects of radiation safety. This webinar will introduce you to radiation safety in a research and healthcare environment. We will review some basic ionizing radiation safety principles, discuss in detail specific radiation hazards in these environments, and cover common health physics practices in these settings.

This webinar is a 1 hour lecture and 30 minutes of Q&A.

Objectives

Upon completion, participants will be able to: 

  1. Describe the various sources of ionizing radiation in an academic healthcare environment
  2. Appropriately apply radiation safety principles to maintain exposures ALARA
  3. Explain the various sources of radiation safety standards and regulations as they related to academic healthcare
