Radiation safety is a combination of safe practices and precautionary measures that are put in place to promote safety when working with or near radiation. The three primary means of minimizing radiation exposure are time, distance, and shielding. By calculating exposures to radiation in advance, it is possible to plan safer work practices and put preventive measures in place, so that worker exposure is minimized.

Shielding is a reliable way of reducing radiation exposure to workers. Barrier materials such as lead in the case of gamma radiation or water in the case of neutrons will block or reduce the radiation intensity and can significantly reduce worker exposure. The amount of shielding provided by any barrier will depend on the material and its thickness.

Our experienced shielding experts establish radiation exposure in various circumstances through calculation and advanced computer codes. In addition, our team leverages the decades of operational experience it has accumulated collaborating with nuclear clients to develop effective radiation safety plans and cost-effective approaches to shielding.
