Radiation Protection Supervisors

Introduction

We provide a range of RPS training courses to meet the requirements of Regulation 14, Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999 (IRR99). This requires that employers provide sufficient information, instruction and training to all those who might be affected by ionising radiation.

Aims

The employer must ensure that the Radiation Protection Supervisor (RPS), as required by Regulation 17 of IRR99, is suitably trained and competent to supervise local rules and the radiation protection aspects of the work.

Our 2-day RPS training course covers all the core requirements specified by the HSE; it will also cover the Radioactive Substances Act (RSA93) where appropriate. We examine external radiation hazards (e.g. x-rays, sealed sources) and internal radiation hazards (e.g. radioisotope manipulations) on the same course. This has been an immense success with delegates commending the approach. They learn from each other by discussing similar (and different) problems and issues.

Our RPS training will ensure the delegate:

We particularly concentrate on Local Rules and the duties of the RPS but will always cover the following:

We personalise our courses in two distinct ways. Firstly, the colour laser printed course notes are customised for each training session - each delegate will recognise their own ionising radiation uses described throughout. Secondly, each delegate is also given a personalised section of course notes after the training course following a meeting with our RPA.

The core learning objectives are supplemented with further material (as appropriate to the delegates) including:
