The course on radiation safety is primarily directed to the protection of workers, members of the public and the environment by emphasizing aspects of radiation protection and safety, in line with the requirement of the Atomic Energy Licensing Act 1984 (Act 304).

The increasing use of ionising radiation in various sector- industry, medical, manufacturing, agriculture, research, etc- demands a comprehensive implementation of the Atomic Energy Licensing Act which requires all organizations involved in the use of ionising radiation to have a radiation protection officer and properly trained radiation workers.

It is envisaged that this training programme would raised the radiation safety practice to the highest possible level and at the same time would leads to the development of safety culture in an organization. The course is aimed to provide platform and preparing a personnel for a career in radiation related position/task such as Radiation Protection Officer or Radiation Protection Supervisor.
