Radiation Protection Local Rules

These rules apply to the operation of all x-ray equipment installed at ESCENTICS.  The Radiation Protection Supervisor ( RPS ) is DR D.S. SOHAL. 

Controlled and Supervised Area

When any x-ray machine is working, a controlled area exists within the primary beam until it has been sufficiently attenuated or absorbed in material. 

Duties of Employees

All clinical personnel must:

a) Ensure that exposures to staff, and all other persons, are kept as low as reasonably practicable;
b) Take reasonable care when working with any aspect of dental radiography - in particular, radiography must be conducted with due regard to minimising accidental or unintended doses to patients;
c) Immediately report to the RPS (Daljit Sohal) any incident that may result in the overexposure of themselves or anyone else. 

All clinical personnel have a duty to exercise reasonable care and act responsibly in relation to radiography.  They are required to know and observe these rules at all times.
