Provide regulatory staff with technical, security and safety information, typical regulatory requirements and inspection techniques for evaluating industrial radiography through onsite inspection.
The workshop on Safety, Security and Regulatory Inspection of Industrial Radiography Operations includes classroom presentations on the devices and radioactive sources used in industrial radiography, the objectives and operations of industrial radiographers, the training and qualification of individuals who conduct industrial radiography (the radiographers), the transportation and security of the radioactive sources used in industrial radiography, the safety procedures to protect the radiographers and members of the public during radiographic operations and the proper use of radiation detection devices and instrumentation. The organization and implementation of inspection procedures are also presented. The workshop includes setting up a mock inspection under the supervision of the instructor or the instructor observing an inspection of an operating radiography organization by the regulatory staff. In either case, the instructor observes and provides feedback, guidance and mentoring to the regulatory staff.
This workshop can be combined with the workshop on Licensing of Industrial Radiography to cover both inspection and licensing activities, but each subject in less detail.
While the workshop is focused on improving the skills of the regulatory staff, some RSRP partners invite the staff of operating radiographers to attend.
