To promote best practice and excellence in radiation safety, a series of short advice sheets has been published by The British Institute of Radiology (BIR) that give information on key aspects of radiation safety, why they are important and where to find some further information.
Practical tips and guidance are given on five aspects of radiation safety, covering radiation risks, personal protective equipment, keeping staff doses ALARP and top tips for equipment installation and safety advice regarding non-medical referrers.
The sheets have been produced by the BIR Radiation Safety Special Interest Group chaired by Peter Hiles and are available to download from the group’s web page.
