Occupational and Environmental Radiation Protection (OERP04)
|Event Date/Time: Mar 15, 2004||End Date/Time: Mar 18, 2004|
The program content has been thoroughly revised to reflect recent developments. New material in 2004 includes a session on Nuclear Terrorism and a revised optional session on Nuclear Weapons and Nuclear War. The program directors, who serve as industry leaders in all facets of the field and have more than a century of combined experience, have selected faculty members from industry, government, academia, and medical institutions to ensure that participants receive the latest information from experts who have distinguished themselves by both their technical knowledge and their teaching ability.
One of the primary objectives throughout the program is to provide guidance on how to meet regulatory requirements from both a technical and an administrative point of view. Once this goal has been met, the next objective is to demonstrate additional methods of control that can be applied to ensure any doses received by either the workers or the public are maintained at a level that is “as low as reasonably achievable.” Another important objective is to familiarize participants with effective methods for meeting their information needs, both through the published literature and by searching the Internet. Interactive sessions will range from understanding and application of radiation standards, to coping with mishaps in the laboratory, and assisting members of the public in understanding complex radiation protection issues. Other sessions will address specific EPA standards, NRC and Agreement State regulations
