Introduction 

Radiation safety is the most important for the radiation practitioner when carrying out activities with the ionising radiation. Radiological accidents are preventable through attention to hazards and appropriate action by each individual and the responsible organisation making it a manageable event. Managers and supervisors are responsible to ensure that an adequate system is in place to conduct work safely. For each work activity, an identifiable line management chain is ultimately responsible.

In realising the need, Nuclear Malaysia has initiated a course on integrated radiation safety management system (IRSMS). It is aimed to highlight the integration of international standard (IAEA) and AELB national’s standard and requirements into the OSH management. Through this integration, it is able to manage a variety of hazards on environmental, safety and health and by promoting safe behavior at all levels of workers. The IRSMS is made up of 5 components essential for proper work management.

The course is aimed to provide the basis of integration into OSH management to ensure adequate protection of workers, the public and the environment and encourage licensee to manage radiation safety based on performance, and not on compliance culture, with the final objective of professing a safety culture through self regulation. There is a significant improvement observed in the IRSMS as compared to the current Radiation Protection Program, and this will certainly benefit an organisation with ultimate goals to continuously strive for a healthy, accident free and environmentally sound workplace and community, while providing the technical support needed to meet the national mission.

To facilitate the adoption and implementation of IRSMS, Nuclear Malaysia will conduct a three-day course that provides vital information and guidelines for radiation practitioners to plan and implement IRSM in their respective organisations.
