Virtual - Radioactive Substances: An Introduction to Suitable and Safe Use

Wed 18 Jan 2023

Description

Anyone who is a first-time user of unsealed radioactive substances is expected to attend this acquaintanceship course before they begin the work. Users of radioactive substances who are new to the University should also attend. This course also acts as a refresher for experienced users and for users from other institutions or countries. There will be time for discussion and questions at the end of the session. You will be required to complete a short quiz after the course to confirm your understanding of core aspects of radiation safety.

Please follow this link https://sms.cam.ac.uk/media/3226606 to a 20 minute video 'Working with radioactivity safely' which you will need to watch before attending the main course. You will need your Raven password to access this video. If any problems, please contact safety.training@admin.cam.ac.uk.
