Good Science in Plain Language

About The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada

Founded in 1980, the Radiation Safety Institute of Canada is an independent, national organization dedicated to promoting and advancing radiation safety in the workplace, in the environment and in the community. Our commitment to the principle of “good science in plain language”® underpins everything we do.

As the world-class centre of excellence, Our mission is to promote
radiation safety and awareness through sharing science and best practice.

We offer a broad range of educational, technical and scientific services to businesses, organizations and individuals across Canada and around the world. The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada is known among our friends and customers for the high quality of our work and the integrity of our people. Our impartial information hotline service receives hundreds of calls and emails every year for information and assistance on workplace radiation questions.

The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada was founded as an independent, non-partisan, non-governmental body to promote safety in relation to radiation exposure in the workplace and in homes, schools and the environment. Its founding was a direct, independent response to the human disaster in the Elliot Lake uranium mines, where healthy miners had been exposed to excessive amounts of a common radioactive gas (called radon) in the underground mining environment.

The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada is also a registered charity.
