Industrial radiography - managing radiation risks - Ionising Radiation Protection Series No. 1(2018)

Source: HSE

This HSE publication on industrial radiography has been out for some time but now updated to be compatible with the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17). Industrial radiography is potentially a high radiation risk undertaking and so requires a consent (unless it takes place in an enclosure where no access is possible). This resource considers enclosure vs open site radiography, risk assessment, planning the radiography, maintenance of radiography equipment, local rules and contingency plans. Of note, the updated resource highlights the new IRR17 regulatory requirement to 'rehearse the operation of the contingency plans periodically'.
