X-Ray Safety Training
X-Ray Safety Training is a 2-day general awareness describing nature of electromagnetic radiation (EM), X-rays and hazards, radiation protection, regulations, FDA guidelines, safety engineering principles, risk analysis, biological effects of radiation exposure, mitigation and radiation shielding. Other EM radiation, non-ionizing such as radio, infrared, visible, and ultraviolet are also discussed and compared with X-ray.
X-Ray training course is oriented to engineers, operators, project managers, testers and acquisition professionals. However, it is relevant to all trades and types of personnel working with X-Ray technology and X-Ray exposure in the workplace.
