An interesting view from an air traveler in the US and his views on airport x-ray scanners.
My view on this is the author is articulate and engaged but not has not been convinced that the risk of cancer being induced from the airport x-ray machine is negligible. Is this a a communication's problem from the people who made it and use it? Is this a case of (newspaper) hype overcoming reason in general? You know the 'all radiation is bad' school of thought. Risk communication is my take on this. The author drives or gets a bus or taxi to the airport - I would have thought the risk of injury from a transport accident would be higher that the risk of him contracting cancer from an airport x-ray machine.
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.
