The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is concerned about the adverse trend in reported doses for industrial radiographers and this has prompted a number of initiatives aimed at achieving a higher standard of radiation protection in this field.
Inspectors are increasingly looking to the use ofshielded enclosures for radiography work, but where this is not reasonably practicable and a temporary controlled area has to be established, they will require advance notice of each job (known as site radiography).
Notifications are expected to provide all the information required under the Ionising Radiations Regulations 1985 (IRR 85) and to give seven days notice of the work.
In cases of genuine emergency, inspectors may consent to a shorter notification period.
Inspectors will endeavour to apply the policy on notifications in a fair and consistent fashion.
