Training Dates/How to Register for each Course
to help you prepared for the Radiation Safety Workshop for Radioactive
Safety Procedure: The Internal Permit Holder is responsible to ensure
that all Designated Workers as listed on their Permit are aware of all
radiation safety procedures, trained to work safely with radiation and
to provide site-specific training in the safe use of radioactive materials
and other sources of ionizing radiation.
In addition to site specific training, everyone on an Internal Radioisotope
Permit must have documented University Radiation Safety Training (or the
equivalent) as defined in the Radiation Safety Manual. Everyone on an
Internal Radioisotope Permit must be re-trained every three years.
Radiation Safety Training is also available by request for sealed source
users other than Moisture Density Gauge users, for shipping radioactive
materials or training of persons who are working in the vicinity of radioactive
Radiation Safety Training Requirements
1. Radiation Safety Orientation Training (Self Study or Group Session)
Must be completed by all staff and students within one month of being
listed on a Radioisotope Permit at the University of Manitoba. Completing
the Orientation exempts staff and students from attending the first morning
of the Radiation Safety Workshop for Radioactive Chemicals as listed below.
Safety Workshop for Radioactive Chemicals (1½ Days) This Workshop
must be completed by all staff and students within four months of being
listed on an open source (radioactive chemicals) radioisotope permit at
the University of Manitoba.
Safety Workshop for Nuclear Gauges/Moisture Density Gauges (4 hours)
This Workshop must be completed by all staff and students prior to using
or transporting a Nuclear Gauge and within four months of being listed
on a University Radioisotope Permit for Nuclear Gauges.
4. Refresher Radiation Safety Training (1-3 hours in the Permit Holder's
Lab) Refresher training is required every three years for those previously
trained in Radiation Safety and continuing to use radioactive materials
at the University
5. Re-Certification to Receive Radioactive Materials (½ - 1
hour) This training is required every three years and is designed
to be specific for the participant. This session is also offered with
the Refresher Radiation Safety Training.
