RADIATION & NORM TESTING is conducted by an Industrial Hygienist using a Geiger-Mueller Counter or radiation detector. Background radiation is sampled along with radiation from the isotope source.

Work processes are examined along with the duration of work to determine the radiation dose of workers, and safe exposure limits.

Industrial at greatest risk of radiation exposure include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Oil and Gas Production
  • Phosphate Fertilizer Production
  • Forestry
  • Thermal Energy Production
  • Mineral Extraction and Processing
  • Tunnelling and Underground Workings
  • Metal Recycling
  • Waste Management
  • Water Treatment
  • Non Destructive Testing
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Law Enforcement
  • Nuclear Power Production
