The course enables the participant to better understand the safety concerns arising from the ionising radiation emitted from the gauges.

Information about coronavirus in relation to courses, events, etc.

At FORCE Technology, we follow the authorities' recommendations and do everything possible to minimize the spread of Covid-19 (coronavirus). This means that we take a number of precautions in our daily lives, which also affect our courses, events, clubs and networks.

Planned courses, events etc. which cannot be held in accordance with the recommendations from the authorities, will, as far as possible, be conducted online. Where this is not an option, we will rebook for a later date. If you have already registered for a course or event, you will be notified by e-mail.

If you have any questions, please contact us at info@force.dk

Participants
The course is primarily aimed at companies and individuals that employ moisture and density gauges containing radioactive sources.

Content

The course is divided into 4 parts:
 
Part 1
  • radioactivity and ionising radiation
  • the interactions between ionising radiation and matter
  • units and relevant quantities
Part 2
  • the biological effects of ionising radiation
  • ICRP-recommendations and dose limits
  • everyday exposure to ionising radiation; natural and man-made
Part 3
  • practical radiation protection (distance, time, shielding)
  • demonstration of the cleaning procedure for the gauge, including dose measurement and calculation of dose levels from both gamma and neutron radiation
Part 4
  • Danish National Board of Health regulations no. 823 and no. 985 (dose limits and regulation regarding closed radioactive sources)
  • directions for the safe use of the gauge and regulation regarding transport

Course gain
