Site Radiation Officer
As the Site Radiation Officer, I provide an overall
co-ordinating role to the University for all aspects of radiation work
and radiological safety, involving both ionising (radioactive material
and x-rays) and non-ionising (microwaves, lasers, ultraviolet light and
strong magnetic fields eg MRI/MNR) radiations. My main objective is to
ensure the University remains in compliance with the relevant
legislation or Approved Codes of Practice.
I am vice chair of the Radiological Safety Sub-Committee
and also a member of the Health & Safety Committee, the Life &
Health Sciences Health & Safety Advisory Committee, and the Health
& Safety Audit Group.
Although my role is fundamentally radiation safety, over
many years working at Aston, I have gained knowledge and awareness of
other aspects of health and safety, and enjoy getting involved with
these and seeing many of the issues being successfully resolved.
