Basic Radiation Safety (BRS)
Basic Radiation Safety (BRS) training introduces the behaviour of radioactive isotopes and the absorption process.
Delegates will learn basic physics relevant to the nature of ionising radiation and its source.
Delegates completing a Basic Radiation Safety (BRS) training course will be able to;
- List basic hazards and harmful effects relating to exposure to radiation
- Recognise limitation requirements
- Calculate/evaluate safe distances and check dose levels
- Explain effective uses of shielding and distance
- Devise and execute contingency arrangements
- Experience emergency procedures
- Meet the syllabus requirements of CSWIP/PCN level 1 (depending on the training scheme selected)
A Basic Radiation Safety (BRS) training course includes;
- Basic concepts
- Quantities and units
- Biological effects
- Dose limitation
- Preparation for radiation works
- Requirements of ionising radiation regulations
- Protection from external radiation
- Basic principles of radiation protection
- Radiation monitoring
- Personnel monitoring
- Transport of radioactive materials
- Dealing with emergencies
There are no prerequisites for a Basic Radiation Safety (BRS) training course.
PLEASE NOTE: This training is delivered on behalf of AIS Training by TWI Ltd staff at the TWI Ltd centre in Aberdeen. The training is available as part of the PCN or CSWIP scheme.
