Agenda

In this webinar, you will learn how radioactivity and radiation work, how you can get exposed and how it can affect you. You will also learn about artificial radioactive materials, Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM), Technologically-Enhanced NORM, as well as regulations, laboratory testing requirements, methods and techniques.


En visionnant ce webinaire, vous en apprendrez sur la radioactivité, le rayonnement, mais aussi comment vous pouvez y être exposé et l’effet potentiel sur vous. Vous acquerrez des connaissances sur les matériaux radioactifs d’origine artificielle et naturelle, puis ceux qui ont été améliorés par des moyens technologiques, en plus de la réglementation qui les encadrent. Enfin, nous traiterons des exigences en laboratoire, mais aussi des méthodes et techniques analytiques utilisées.
