Technical Radiation Protection
During our Radiation Protection Supervisor (RPS) training courses we reassure delegates that there is very little in the way of complicated maths or physics – its generally not important when working safely with ionising radiation (understanding the concepts are important). However, there is a good dose of physics and mathematics behind these concepts and principles which is what you will find in this area of the site. Mathematical derivation, shielding calculations, and other health physics concepts are featured.
Radiation is one of the important factors in evolution. It causes mutation, and some level of mutation is actually good for evolution
