In order to assist the relevant Schools and research groups, the RPA prepares generic radiation risk assessments for radiation work carried out within the University.
Radiation risk assessments are completed by the addition of an approved Proposed Scheme of Work form, which has been signed by the radiation worker, the RPS and the RPA. The PSoW form allows any variation from the generic assessment and any local differences to be considered.
The possession of a completed PSoW form and the generic risk assessment should together make up a suitable and sufficient radiation risk assessment for each radiation worker.
