The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada is proud to offer its new, FREE online course, “Understanding Radiation”.
This 20 minute course, developed in cooperation with the Ontario Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), educates workers and other members of the public on matters concerning radiation and radiation safety.
Please click on the image below to launch the course in a new window. Once you have finished viewing the course, we invite you to fill out a Survey about it. This will help us develop new material to better serve the public in matters concerning radiation safety.
Please note the following error: On screen 14, we define the milliSievert (mSv) as one one-millionth (1/1,000,000) of a Sievert, which is incorrect. A milliSievert is equal to one one-thousandth (1/1000) of a Sievert.
Please take a few minutes to fill out a survey about the course you just took. You can also contact us with any further comments and questions.
