Working with ionizing radiation sources presents many safety issues. Universities must ensure radiation levels remain low and are compliant with regulations. To achieve this, all members of the research team must understand the risks involved with working with radiation sources and how to manage these potential risks.

Radiation is a critical part of safety programs. A Radiation Safety Plan includes the basics of training, engineering controls, personal protective equipment and work practices designed for protection. Our Radiation Safety (University) Interactive Training covers topics on radiation safety and how you can use this information to stay safe and healthy in your work environment.

Training for radiation workers includes instruction in the basic principles of radiation protection and the applicable policies, procedures, and regulatory requirements. Initial and annual refresher training is provided to those individuals involved in the medical uses of radioactive material. Radiation safety in-services are provided to various University and hospital departments upon request.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
