XRF health, safety & competency training
Short course on the theory behind XRF and safe use
With a focus on health & safety and competency, this short course will teach you the theory behind X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) Analysis and explain how to use an XRF Analyser in a safe and controlled manner.
XRF analysis is a Non-Destructive Testing method which allows the measurement and identification of elemental composition. The technique works by bombarding the material’s atomic structure with primary radiation, which then makes the material emit secondary radiation (because the electrons are “excited”). The energy from this excitement or “fluorescence” is measured and its characteristics can then be analysed and identified.
Under the Ionising Radiation Regulations (IRR2017) it’s important that anyone who is required to operate an XRF Analyser is shown how to use the instrument in the correct manner and has a full understanding of the health and safety implications.
The training has been designed as an introduction to X-ray Fluorescence Analysis and is suitable for users with a limited understanding of the topic. Typically you would book the training if this was your first time working with X-ray Fluorescence Analysis or if you were looking for a refresher course to ensure you’re up to date with the latest regulations.
As standard, the training will cover the following:
- What is ionizing radiation?
- Shielding & units of measurement
- Dose quantities and legislation
- Effects of radiation exposure
- What is X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF)?
- What is an XRF analyser?
- Control measures & safety monitoring
- Local Rules & Useful reference
