Radiation

Radiation safety within Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) focuses on minimizing the risks associated with exposure to ionizing and non-ionizing radiation in the workplace. This includes sources like X-rays, gamma rays, ultraviolet, and microwave radiation. OHS guidelines emphasize the importance of assessing and monitoring radiation levels, implementing control measures to limit exposure, and providing training to workers on the risks and safety protocols. Protective measures such as shielding, barriers, and personal protective equipment (PPE) are essential, alongside regular equipment maintenance and ensuring compliance with radiation safety standards. Creating awareness about the hazards of radiation exposure, establishing clear procedures, and promoting a culture of safety are integral in mitigating risks and safeguarding workers’ health from potential radiation-related hazards in the workplace.
