The myths surrounding radiation exposure may be great for a Hollywood screenplay, but they won't help you work safely around radiation at your facility. Use this radiation safety course to learn about ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, gamma rays, isotope encapsulation, radiation-based sensor usage, radiation strength, and exposure minimization. We're sure you'll find our radiation course a valuable asset to your safety program!

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Define "radiation"
  • Describe non-ionizing radiation and ionizing radiation
  • Define gamma radiation
  • Describe industrial uses of radiation
  • Identify hazards associated with radiation
  • Describe how to minimize exposure

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is radiation?
Energy traveling through space in the form of waves (or particles).

What are the two broad types of radiation?
Ionizing and non-ionizing.

Which of the two broad types of radiation can change the structure of other atoms and therefore presents serious health hazards?
Ionizing radiation, and in particular x-rays and gamma rays.

How is radiation used in industrial and manufacturing settings?
X-rays may be used in a variety of manners. Likewise, gamma rays are often used as sensors and for measurement purposes.

How can I reduce my exposure to radiation at work?
Ensure that the radiation source is shielded, keep your distance, and minimize the amount of time you are near the radiation source.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

This module will focus primarily on issues surrounding relatively small sources of high energy radiation, which are used in censor applications in industrial settings. If radiation is not properly controlled, it can be hazardous to the health of workers. Radiation may be defined as energy traveling through space and can be classified into two broad categories, ionizing and non-ionizing. Ionization is the process in which a charged portion of a molecule, usually an electron, is given enough energy to break away from the atom. This process changed the atomic structure of the molecule and results in the formation of two charged particles called ions. The term radiation is commonly associated with radioactivity which refers to a substance which gives off ionizing radiation.

Customer Q&A

Ask a Question

Sorry, we're missing some information

How do I log in to watch a video that I have already paid for?

Easy! Moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course, you'll receive an email with login details. Just click the link and log in with your user name and password and you're on your way!

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
