The safe and effective management of radiation sources at your worksite(s) depends on personnel having awareness and understanding of the necessary practices, procedures, monitoring and compliance associated with radioactive material and x-ray apparatus.

Radiation Services WA can provide you with the development and review of your management plans, providing you with the confidence that your company expectations and the necessary regulatory requirements will be satisfied.

Radiation Management Plans

A functional radiation management system is based on many variables, but one of the most important foundations is having high quality radiation management procedures and documentation.
These documents should be balanced to ensure all company expectations and regulatory requirements are fulfilled, yet be clear and concise enough to be understood and implemented by all radiation workers.

An effective RMP is a pivotal document that communicates company expectations and regulatory requirements in a concise, yet thorough way.
Radiation Services WA can assist with any formal documentation required around your Radiation Management Documents including:

  • Initial development

  • Formal review and implementation of changes

  • Review only and recommendations made for your company to implement the changes internally

Features of Radiation Management Plans:

  • Required by Legislation and Codes of Practice

  • Endorsed by Responsible Person (Company) and relevant regulator
  • Clearly define responsibilities and expectations
  • Provide working rules, emergency procedures
  • Provide for and require regular review

Source Security Plans

A security assessment should be performed against the criteria identified in the ARPANSA Code of Practice for Security of Radioactive Sources (RPS 11).
Radiation Services WA can assist with determination of whether sources – or an aggregate of sources in one location – are classified as ‘security enhanced’ or not and advise on what an appropriate level of security will be.

Use and Storage of sources categorised as Security Enhanced (Cat 1, 2 or 3) must be in accordance with an endorsed Source Security Plan and the Transport of these sources must be performed under an endorsed Source Transport Security Plan.

Annual Reporting

Your Annual Report should document the current radiation management status of your companies operations including current inventory (and movements) of radiation sources, operational achievements, events and incidents in the previous 12 months and it should detail the findings of your Annual Audit. Specific requirements for annual reporting vary depending on the type of radiation source you are using.

Should Radiation Services WA assist your site by performing annual Compliance Auditing, we are able to meet your Annual Reporting requirements efficiently by producing a Site Visit Report that incorporates all the key criteria. Site-time permitting, our Radiation Protection Advisors are generally able to combine site activities with an informal review of your site Radiation Management Plan, offering further value to our clients.
