WHAT WE DO
Radiation Protection Advice and Support
Engineering controls are pivotal when considering work with ionising radiation. RPmatters is perfectly placed to offer support and advice for implementing and assessing the effectiveness of engineering controls for full compliance with legislation. Bringing in qualified professional as early as possible in the project minimises Radiation Protection problems later on. UK Legislation requires the Employer to consult with a qualified Radiation Protection Advisor on aspects of radiation protection in the workplace.
We can fulfil all the requirements of a Radiation Protection Advisor. RPmatters has produced (and can produce) Policies and procedures for multinational and smaller companies ensure safe place of work. Prior Radiation Risk Assessments ensure ALL necessary precautions are in place and understood by the work force. Detailed ALARP assessments, dose assessments and shielding calculations are carried out (where required) ensuring compliance with legislation and any dose constraints.
All the above are required for legislative compliace.
Whether it is the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 or the Housing Health and Safety Ratings System compliance, RPmatters is here to help.
RPmatters has developed dose management programmes for internal use and for high dose projects. We distribute dosimetry across the UK and provide timely reporting to effectively manage workers exposure and enable work in high dose areas to continue.
