This 1-day (8 hours) awareness course is designed to ensure that workers have a good understanding of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) including its origins, a basic understanding of radiation and its associated potential health hazards, and how to detect NORM and control radiation exposures. This provides workplaces with confidence to manage their personal safety in environments where NORM is potentially an issue.

Oil and gas operations may bring to the surface naturally occurring radioactive materials such as uranium and thorium, radium 226 and radium 228. A quality NORM survey will detect radiation, its location and source. Armed with this information you can make better safety decisions for your workplace in order to decide on the necessary protection levels and control measures.
Our experienced scientific staff can carry out a tailor-made NORM survey and help you address your NORM hazards.
