All users of x-ray equipment must comply with the Ionising Radiation Regulations IRR2017 to ensure they are providing adequate radiation protection.
To do so they are required to:
- Register with the HSE
- Consult an RPA (Radiation Protection Advisor)
- Appoint and train an RPS (Radiation Protection Supervisor)
- Produce a Risk Assessment
- Write and implement a set of Local Rules
- Provide suitable and appropriate training
For anyone new to x-ray this can be a challenging task, but with our assistance the process of becoming compliant with the Ionising Radiiation Regualtions (IRR17) is straight forward. We keep a comprehensive set of documents and procedures for typical equipment types and operating scenarios, which can be tailored to the specific needs of the user. Our RPS can prepare all the necessary documents and organise training allowing your staff to concentrate on their core business.
Radiation Protection Supervisors
At Electron-X we have experienced Radiation Protection Supervisors (RPS) in-house. They are fully trained and qualified to work with all aspects of x-ray and are continually monitored by an independent, external Radiation Protection Advisor (RPA). Our RPS will ensure that any system, installation or service that we supply will meet all the statutory requirements of the current Ionising Radiation Regulations (IRR17). They can also advise on areas such as radiation monitoring including personal dosimetry badges, radiation detectors and dose measuring equipment.
