ETP 2213 Radiological Safety and Protection

This course examines concepts and skills for ensuring and maintaining safety in the use of radioactive materials, with an emphasis on implementing ALARA principles. Concepts of time, distance, shielding, and protective clothing to minimize dose exposure in a variety of situations (both routine and off-normal) within radiological environments are covered. Students learn sources of radiation, biological effects and risks associated with exposure to ionizing radiation, radiological protection standards, external exposure control, contamination control, airborne radioactivity control, and conducting and monitoring of radiological work.
