The health physics team work together with the radioactive material handlers and are always willing to discuss the most effective procedure in order to maintain doses well below the regulated maximums. It is our responsibility to monitor every location on campus which uses radioactivity whether it be a hospital, reactor, or lab. Many work and conduct research in several areas around campus and the health physics team is available to ensure all safety protocols are being followed and all training is understood in order to provide a safe environment for all. Therefore, they are an absolute staple to ensuring safety and training for all.
Health Physics Team
The Health Physics Department ensures the safety, continuous monitoring and training for all those who deal with radiation in the McMaster community.
