Hazard assessment - work safety assessments

Before starting any work with radiation researchers must complete a Work Safety Assessment (WSA) which highlights the hazards and risks associated with all aspects of the research program. This process allows consideration to be given towards specific requirements such as protective measures, training, storage facilities, waste disposal methods, emergency procedures and management licence upgrades. The WSA should be reviewed annually as a minimum, and from time to time as required when changes occur to equipment, operators or work practices.

WSAs should be filled out by the Project Leader in conjunction with the Project Manager, and must be approved by the Area Manager and Radiation Safety Officer before any work commences. Further details are available in section 5 of the Radiation Management Plan.
