Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) Training Course

Radiation Safety Officer Training for Medical, Dental, Industrial and Anti-Crime X-ray Facilities

Our radiation safety training for medical and dental applications

The use of medical radiation technologies is intended to promote protection and safety in a medical setting.

This is the goal of employees who work with radiation in medical facilities and the expectation of patients undergoing diagnosis or treatment. Completing radiation safety officer training strengthens its benefits while minimizing its risks.

Patients can be confident that procedures entail as little risk as possible and employees thrive in an environment that respects their safety with strong managerial and administrative protective policies.

Frequently asked questions

Display all Hide all

How does radiation affect the public?

The exact effect depends on the specific type and intensity of radiation exposure.

How can exposure to radiation be minimized?

Time, distance, and shielding measures minimize exposure to radiation in much the same way they would protect against overexposure to the sun.

How far does radiation travel?

Travel distance depends on the type of radiation, as does the ability to penetrate other materials.

Alpha and beta particles do not travel far at all, and they are easily blocked. By contrast, gamma rays, x-rays, and neutrons travel a significant distance and are much more difficult to block (particularly from large radioactive sources).
