What are Radiation Protection Checklists?
Also called radiation safety checklists, radiation protection checklists are tools used for identifying radiation overexposure hazards and for inspecting equipment and PPE. These checklists are vital for confirming an organization’s conformance with the principles of radiation safety and compliance with regulations on protecting workers against radiation overexposure.
The use of radiation protection checklists by radiation safety officers during regular self-inspections not only can help promote the safety of employees working with equipment that emits radiation or those who handle radioactive material but also can help the organization prepare for annual compliance audits.
