Ionizing radiation sources can be found in a wide range of occupational settings, including health care facilities, research institutions, nuclear reactors and their support facilities, nuclear weapon production facilities, and other various manufacturing settings. These radiation sources can pose a considerable health risk to affected workers if not properly controlled.
Keeping the risks and health consequences in proper perspective, this program explores how radioactive isotopes affect the body and how to prevent dangerous exposure from occurring. Use Summit's Radiation Safety program to educate your workers about:
