Radiation training has always been challenging; a health risk not only to the students but also the instructor. How can you ensure people understand that this invisible threat, which generates no immediate sensation, is so dangerous?
Most detection instruments are not too difficult to use; which is potentially a hazard since a little knowledge can often be dangerous! Thankfully, most users never experience high readings for real. The skill, of course, is in learning how to recognize and avoid the potential threat and keep safe.
Using real radiation sources has value for your training, but the legislation and administration associated with storing, transporting and using live sources or dispersing radioactive contaminant are not something you look forward to every day, and the cost of their replacement is very high.
Ensuring your staff understand readings, changes in units of measurement, shielding, survey, contamination avoidance, and decontamination procedures is difficult. Generating realistic scenarios, such as damaged source containment, radionuclide spills, major reactor releases or even a radiological dispersion device, even more so.
Argon's environmentally friendly, safe radiation training systems use simulated radionuclide emitters, enabling a variety of indoor and outdoor scenarios for Beta/Gamma search and survey, radionuclide identification, contamination monitoring, and dose rate assessment.
Based upon either adapted instruments, simulation probes or generic trainers, our simulators are easy to use and require no preventative maintenance or regular calibration. Used alone or integrated with our Live or Virtual training solutions, you can create and repeat a wide variety of safe, “regulation free” scenarios to fulfil your radiological hazard training needs.
