Legal Requirement for Radiation Protection Training

Regulation 35 of the Radiological Protection Act, 1991 (Ionising Radiation) Regulations, 2019 requires that appropriate education, training and information in the field of radiation protection is provided for all employees (or students / apprentices) working with sources of ionising radiation. In order to assist our clients in complying with this legal obligation, Radiation Safety Ireland can develop and provide in-house bespoke training courses at your site or provide training courses online or remotely for your convenience.

A range of training courses can be tailored to suit specific client needs and can be undertaken in-house, remotely or online, as follows:
