Physics Program (Radiation Protection Program)
The complex realities of a business’s
regulatory and safety requirements must be satisfied
by developing in-house programs, plans and procedures.
This is especially true for businesses using
or handling radiological materials.
The primary objective of a Health Physics Program
is to provide a well designed, easy-to-understand
program governing facility operations involving
radiation. Properly implemented, this program
will increase the safety of personnel and members
of the general public by avoiding unnecessary
exposures to ionizing radiation.
Auxier & Associates (A&A) can move quickly
and efficiently to help you establish and maintain
a top quality health physics program or upgrade
an existing program by performing an assessment
or an audit.
We have considerable experience with a wide
range of radionuclides and radioactive activities.
We can provide your organization with the program
documentation, procedures, and training that
satisfies today's complex and stringent regulations
while anticipating tomorrow's changes and challenges.
A typical health physics program may include
any combination of the following:
• Health and safety plan
• Dosimetry monitoring plan
• Environmental assessment
• Emergency response plan
• Site survey plan
• Radiation safety plan
• Modeling plan
• Radioactive materials license
• Training plan
A&A has extensive practical experience in
reviewing, developing, implementing, and managing
applied health physics programs for a wide variety
of facilities and operations.
Auxier & Associates can design a site-specific
health physics program for your particular situation.
While emphasizing safety, we will review your
current health physics program for technical
adequacy and regulatory compliance. From this
review, our staff can design the health physics
program which is best for your organization.
We will provide the necessary procedures and
training to assure that your program is implemented
in a manner that provides the appropriate level
of radiation protection and satisfies all applicable
regulatory requirements. It is our objective
that once your health physics program is developed,
all employees will be effectively instructed
in its implementation. A&A will conduct
training courses on how to keep the new program
up and running effectively.
