Our five-day Radiation Safety Officer (RSO-1) training is the premiere course of its kind in Canada and is designed to provide qualified radiation safety personnel for companies and institutions using radioactive materials under Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) regulations.
If you are responsible for workplace radiation safety within your organization, you owe it to your fellow employees to benefit from this highly acclaimed program. The two-day RSO-2 course is a valuable refresher for RSO-1 graduates who need to keep fully abreast of the latest scientific, industry and regulatory developments.
Across Canada, many employers and employees responsible for workplace safety are not fully aware of regulations governing the use of X-ray equipment in the workplace. Yet, every province and territory has such regulations.
If you are responsible under provincial and federal regulations for the safety of employees exposed to X-rays in the workplace, the Radiation Safety Institute of Canada also offers a three-day X-ray Safety Officer (XSO) course which has been awarded 1.0 maintenance points by the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals.
This one-day course is designed for employees who work with x-ray sources and need to understand safety concerns regarding this equipment, but are not directly responsible for X-ray safety in their facility (see XSO, above). Participants will acquire knowledge of practical and effective measures designed to protect against excess radiation exposure from x-rays.
This one-day radiation safety training course will provide employees with the fundamental knowledge required to work safely in the vicinity of open and sealed radiation sources. This course was developed to meet the training requirements of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC).
