Objective

This learning program is designed to meet the criteria for re-approval as an RSO (Radiation Safety Officer) under the Queensland Radiation Safety Act 1999, the NSW Radiation Control Act 1990 and the Federal ARPANS Act 1998. The course deals with the management of radiation safety programs for sealed (including industrial gauges) and unsealed sources and X-ray devices in a variety of environments.

The morning session of the learning program is a condensed technical summary refresher on every aspect of operational radiation safety in a wide range of industries. The afternoon is spent working in teams in a supported environment on standard RSO tasks like audits, waste management planning, development and planning for internal radiation safety training, reviewing radiation safety and protection plans. Technical topics include:  

  • Interactions of radiation with matter
  • Detection and measurement of radiation
  • Radiation gauges
