It is a requirement that users receive suitable training in the safe operation of x-ray equipment and the risks involved with radiation. To cater for this, Electron-X supply comprehensive training programmes tailored to the needs of each client. As well as users, these courses are suitable for other staff including supervisors and senior management. A certificate is issued on satisfactory completion of the course.
Training can include:
- Radiation Safety Training for Users and Support Staff
- RPS training and the Ionising Radiation Regulations IRR2017
- Writing Risk Assessments and Local Rules for specific situations
- X-ray equipment user training
- X-ray equipment service and maintenance training
All training is carried out by our fully trained in-house Radiation Protection Supervisors (RPS).
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.
