X-ray safety in the workplace

Steve Wilson, Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC
Colin Murray, Sr., WorkSafeBC
Dr. Curtis Caldwell, Radiation Safety Institute of Canada

In the coming years, an estimated 100,000 BC workers may experience some level of occupational radiation exposure annually. Use of x-ray and related technologies in manufacturing is on the rise to ensure product quality—yet many manufacturers may not recognize the associated hazards and the controls to address x-ray safety in their OHS programs. In this workshop, learn to recognize the risks and understand employer responsibilities for developing and implementing an exposure control plan, conducting required radiation surveys, and maintaining related records.
