Foundations of an X-Ray Safety Program for Industrial X-Ray Users

On Friday May 26th, Laura Boksman, our Senior Consulting Scientist hosted a 1-hour FREE of charge webinar.

We discussed the various elements included in an x-ray safety program, for x-rays used in an industrial setting (as opposed to health care or veterinary medicine).

We also discussed differing aspects, including the overall company x-ray safety (ALARA) policy, the X-Ray Safety Officer (often called a Radiation Protection Officer), worker qualifications and training, controls on the x-ray machines, instrumentation, and documentation/records.
