You are hereradiation protection
Information on radiation protection
The University of Adelaide, in collaboration with the Environment Protection Authority South Australia, is currently developing a new postgraduate program in radiation management.
To assist with the development of the program, they are conducting a market survey to gauge the level of interest from radiation agencies and individual licensees across Australia.
The proposed Graduate Certificate in Radiation Management would aim to deliver tertiary-qualified graduates with the competence to supervise and manage radiation safety in mining, industrial radiography, security or scientific industries. Graduates would be trained to ensure that radiation work is carried out safely and in accordance with national and international requirements.
This program would create the next generation of tertiary-qualified Radiation Safety Officers in Australia and overseas.
The surveys will close on 30 June 2013.
Survey for individuals
This survey consists of 13 questions and should take around 5 minutes to complete. If you wish to save your responses and return to the survey at a later stage, you will need to use the same computer and the same browser to pick up and finish (cookies must be enabled on your computer).
Survey for businesses
This survey consists of 8 questions and should take less than 5 minutes to complete. If you wish to save your responses and return to the survey at a later stage, you will need to use the same computer and the same browser to pick up and finish (cookies must be enabled on your computer).

An interesting article by Professor Barry Brooks titled, 'Is Japan’s nuclear-free pathway an environmentally friendly choice?' here- raises some interesting questions.
Review from Slashdot
The Bulletin is just releasing its 'Radiation Issue,' which is available for free for two weeks. It explores how the NRC may be changing recommended safe dosages, and how the studies for prolonged exposure have, until recently, been based on one-time exposures (Hiroshima, etc.). New epidemiological studies on prolonged exposure (medical exposures, worker exposures, etc.) are more accurate and tell a different tale. This is a long article, but reads well."

Sometimes it takes a disaster before we humans really figure out how to design something. In fact, sometimes it takes more than one.
As many of you are aware Japan has recently suffered a major tsunami caused by one of the largest earthquakes in recorded history. There has been (a still be determined) enormous loss of life just from this and the situation is still developing.
This New York Times article outlines concerns about neonatal x-ray overexposure in a Medical Center in Brooklyn.
