The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) is pleased to announce the launch of their new website.
Updates were necessary to ensure the digital platform is running on current software and users are being provided with an optimal experience.
‘To meet the obligations our Agency has to the Australian Government and people, it is essential that our digital tools are running on reliable and consistent platforms,’ Chief Executive Officer Dr Gillian Hirth said.
Features of the site include a new ‘look and feel’ with modern touches to styling and branding.
The update also provides continued access to popular content including:
- Access to real-time ultraviolet (UV) radiation index data, collected by ARPANSA’s network of UV detectors in cities around Australia.
- A comprehensive library of fact sheets on issues relating to radiation and health, including medical and occupational exposure. Popular fact sheets include the use of scalar energy products and exposure to mobile phones, magnetic fields and electrical sources.
- Free online Occupational Radiation Exposure (ORE) training for medical facility workers who use ionising radiation, such as X-rays and nuclear medicine.
The ARPANSA website provides a range of information and resources to protect the health and safety of the public, workers and the environment from the harmful effects of radiation.
