Is this course right for me?

Target Audience: Staff

The University recognises that the role of Departmental Radiation Protection Supervisor (DPRS) is crucial to ensuring that departments comply with arrangements made under the Ionising Radiation Regulations 1999 and, in particular, to supervising local arrangements for ionising radiation work. This is a refresher course for whom it has been 3 or more years since their formal, external RPS training.

Aim of Training: To update and complement existing knowledge and skills concerning:

  • Recent changes in legislation and University arrangements
  • The role of Departmental Radiation Protection Supervisors
  • Group exercises on: Undertaking a suitable and sufficient risk assessment; Spill recovery; Incident management (suspected overexposure, skin contamination, etc.)
  • What to expect from a SEPA compliance audit and lessons from recent findings

Delivered By: Risktec Solutions (Glasgow) Ltd


Attendees should currently be in the role of Departmental Radiation Protection Supervisor and it should be 3 or more years since they undertook their formal, external RPS training.


We want our training sessions to run at full capacity to ensure value for money and to get the most from group interactions and discussions. Cancelling attendance at a course should only be done as a last resort (some of our sessions are delivered by external training providers and we would incur a high fee if we need to cancel sessions based on low numbers). Demand is high for our training sessions with many having a waiting list and when a booking is made, others are turned away on the strength of that booking. If you have to cancel a training session we would appreciate as much notice as possible (at least 48 hours), and this can be done via the "Go To My Bookings" link.
