Radiation Safety Officer Training

Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health will conduct a Radiation Safety Officer Training for Laboratory Professionals from April 11-15, 2016 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Laboratories across industries use radioactive materials for diverse purposes, including research, sterilization, manufacturing, measurement, power generation and medicine. Each of these organizations must appoint a radiation safety officer to oversee the safe use, application, monitoring, and disposal of these materials and protect employee health.

This training program aims to administer the skills needed to become a radiation safety officer able to implement a radiation protection program in laboratory settings.  Areas of emphasis are expected to include:

  • Radiation quantities, units, and measures
  • Radiation exposure, biological effects of radiation, and human health risks
  • Regulatory requirements and radiation protection standards
  • Instrument utilization and procedures
  • Radioactive materials handling, transportation, inventory control, and waste management
  • Good management practices for radiation safety programs

Please visit the Radiation Safety Officer Training for Laboratory Professionals course website for more information and to register.
