Radiological Protection

Radiological Protection

L2 provide our clients with advice on compliance with IRR17 by appointment as Radiation Protection Advisers (RPA) and are recognised by Health & Safety Executive (HSE) as a RPA body under IRR17.

The Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17) require all organisations who work with ionising radiation such as radioactive sources, radioactive substances or X-ray sets to consult with a suitable Radiation Protection.

Our clients work in a wide number of industries including nuclear, oil/gas, manufacturing, inspection and education, where our advice is provided to protect works, the public and the environment from the harmful effects of ionising radiation.

We provide advice to clients on the radiation aspects of projects including the development of engineering controls, facility shielding design, facility containment design, management controls (including the development of documentation), training, dose assessments and project dose constraints. Our work in radiation shielding design involves hand calculations and use of software modelling such as MicroShield®.

Our support includes all the common aspects of radiological protection in addition to the unique elements such as management and disposal of NORM, together with off-shore transport, management and storage of radioactive sources.

In addition to appointment as RPA by clients we are also appointment as Radioactive Waste Advisers (RWA) under EPR16/RSA93 to provide advice on radioactive substance activity environment permits.

The regulations that cover the carriage of radioactive materials and wastes specify that any organisation involved in the carriage, or related packing, loading, filling, or unloading of dangerous goods, such as radioactive sources and waste, has a legal obligation to appoint a Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA).

L2 employ a number of Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers (DGSA) to provide advice to clients on the transport of radioactive materials and waste by road, rail, sea and air.
