Radioactive Substances: An Introduction to Suitable and Safe Use

Thu 25 Jul 2024


Anyone who is a first-time user of unsealed radioactive substances is expected to attend this acquaintanceship course before they begin the work.

There will be time for discussion and questions at the end of the session. You will be required to complete a short quiz after the course to confirm your understanding of core aspects of radiation safety.
