The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency has partnered with the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) government to support the development of a sovereign radiation monitoring capability in the region.
ARPANSA has developed free Occupational Radiation Exposure (ORE) training for all people working in medical facilities that use ionising radiation. This includes hospitals and clinics that use X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans or nuclear medicine.
Any person who uses a source or facility must have appropriate training in radiation safety. To assist licence holders comply with this condition we recognise radiation safety courses approved by the state and territory regulators.
ARPANSA respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, their cultures, and to Elders past and present.
