The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada specializes in the individual monitoring of workers exposed to radiation from radon, thoron and long-lived radioactive dust (LLRD). In fact, the Radiation Safety Institute of Canada is the only organization in North America providing such a service.
The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada’s Radiation Exposure Services, including our patented Personal Alpha Dosimetry (PAD) Service, is licensed by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) under the Canadian Nuclear Safety and Control Act’s Regulatory Standard S-106, Revision 1.
In addition, some industrial and environmental work sites require frequent or continuous monitoring (called “area monitoring”) to ensure that radiation levels are maintained below regulatory exposure limits and guidelines.
PAD Services and area monitoring, including laboratory analysis, technical support, on-site equipment, quality assurance, quality control and timely reporting of results, is provided through the Radiation Safety Institute of Canada’s National Laboratories in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
