Radiation safety & Protection Plan

The Radiation Safety and Protection Plan (RSPP) is a detailed document covering matters relating to radiation governance, accountability, and risk management. The RSPP must demonstrate the actions taken when dealing with a radiation source and precautions taken to ensure that occupationally exposed persons and the public are protected from the harmful effects of radiation. The RSPP must be drafted as per the requirements under the relevant radiation legislation and regulation.

In Queensland, a radiation practice must prepare a Radiation Safety and Protection Plan (RSPP) when applying for a possession licence. Without the RSPP, the application for the possession licence will not be approved.

In other states or territories, a RSPP may not be mandatory but is highly encouraged for best practice to serve as a guide for radiation management.

Each RSPP is different and specific to the radiation source and practice type.

Staff who directly deal with a radiation source must be familiar with the RSPP and receive radiation training.

At Sieverts, we can assist with the development of a RSPP specific to your radiation practice and provide the necessary radiation advice to ensure that the radiation practice complies with the relevant law, regulation, and standards.

Sieverts Radiation is qualified to develop RSPP for radiation practices across Australia.
