Last X-Ray Safety Office (XSO) Course for 2011

October 14, 2011

The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada announces the very last X-Ray Safety Office (XSO) Course for 2011 will take place on November 15 - 17.

Who should take this course:
• If your company or organization uses sources of X-ray radiation, provincial regulators generally require that a qualified person is designated to be in charge of X-ray safety in your workplace.
• If you are responsible for the safety of employees, you owe it to yourself and your colleagues to be educated through our unique 3-day X-ray safety program.

Some of the topics covered in the training include: understanding X-ray radiation and its health effects, X-ray imaging and safety surveys, and radiation detection, instrumentation and dosimetry.

Details, including course descriptions and registration information can be found on our website at

You can also bring the educators at the Radiation Safety Institute of Canada to your workplace! Our two-hour Awareness Education and one-day Employee Training courses are designed to give workers a basic understanding of workplace radiation from nuclear sources, x-rays, radon, electromagnetic fields (EMF) and other forms of radiation, and practical and effective measures on how to reduce exposure in the workplace.
