A new online course, "Understanding Radiation", is available for viewing on The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada's website. This was developed in cooperation with the Ontario Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB).
The 20 minute course is free to all and has been designed to educate workers and other members of the public about radiation and radiation safety and to answer questions they may have about issues concerned with radiation.
The course may be accessed at http://www.radiationsafety.ca/resources/onlinecourse
At the conclusion of the course participants are asked to complete a brief survey, to provide useful feedback to the Radiation Safety Institute of Canada regarding development of future courses of this type.
Founded in 1980, the Radiation Safety Institute of Canada was founded as an independent, non-partisan, non-governmental body to promote safety in relation to radiation exposure in the workplace and in homes, schools and the environment. Our commitment to the principle of "good science in plain language?" underpins everything we do.
Our founding was a direct, independent response to the human disaster in the Elliot Lake uranium mines, where healthy miners had been exposed to excessive amounts of a common radioactive gas (called radon) in the underground mining environment.
According to United Nations officials, the Radiation Safety Institute of Canada is the only independent organization of its kind in any UN member country.
We offer a broad range of educational, technical and scientific services to businesses, organizations and individuals across Canada and around the world. The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada is known among our friends and customers for the high quality of our work and the integrity of our people. Our impartial information hotline service receives hundreds of calls and emails every year for information and assistance on workplace radiation questions.
The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada is also a registered charity.For more information contact
