According to a WA Safety Show exhibitor, the fear of exposure and complex compliance regimes may make radiation daunting but the radioactive gauges used by industry and mining to measure density can be managed safely and efficiently.
One of the few companies licensed to manage radioactive devices in Australia, Radiation Safety Services has a philosophy that "knowledge overcomes fear". When the WA Safety Show returns to Perth from August 24 to 26, Radio Safety Services branch manager, Will Robinson will advise visitors how to deal with radioactive gauges over their lifecycle and comply with Western Australia's legislation.
"The WA Safety Show attracts a good representation of WA industry, so we're expecting visitors to the show to be equally as bamboozled by the paperwork involved with radioactive devices as most organisations who try to deal with it on their own," Robinson says. "The good news is that you can outsource most of it and keep compliance very simple."
The WA Safety Show is run by Australian Exhibitions & Conferences .
