Operational Radiation Safety (ORS) - Where the Rubber Meets the Road

Operational Radiation Safety (ORS) is where the real work of protection gets described. ORS isn't theoretical or research; it's about how to get the work done and be protective of the potential hazards of ionizing and nonionizing radiation. 

Over the years we've had papers on: 

  • How to plan the salvaging of a therapeutic source.
  • What to do if the iodine radiotherapy patient dies.
  • What it was like being in Kiev during the Chernobyl event.
  • Better methods to delineate natural radionuclides prior to building an in situ recovery facility.
  • Many other operational topics.

Sound interesting? You can look these up on the search engine.
