Training Course on “The Use of Radioactive Isotopes for Industrial Measurement

Date: 22 May 2019 – 23 May 2019
Type of event: Training course
Time: 08:30 – 16:30
Venue: The Oaklands Inn & Conference Centre
Website: Click here
Address:
236A Oak Avenue, Ferndale, Randburg
Costs: Paid event

Radioactive isotopes are used extensively for measuring process variables and for determining soil density and moisture. Instruments, utilising radioactive sources in measuring systems, use the absorption principle of the radiation to determine a number of process properties. Despite the relatively small activity of the radioactive isotopes used in industrial measuring systems, misuse or damage can lead to serious injury or even fatality. In order to control the use of radioactive isotopes the Department of National Health brought the Hazardous Substances Act into operation in 1973 and its amendments in 1993. This act lays down procedures for the possession and use of radioactive isotopes. This seminar is designed to equip the participants with an understanding of radioactive sources, their application, safe use and what to do in the case of an incident. The course will also cover the legal requirements for the appointment of radiation protection officers, and the administrative procedures and records required for obtaining, possessing or disposing of radioactive sources. Delegates will be issued with a certificate of attendance which is accepted by the Department of Health as evidence of training for Radiation Protection Officers. This course is aimed at people involved in the management, use or maintenance of measuring equipment containing radioactive sources. It is essential for those people who are, or will be, responsible for ensuring the safe use of radioactive sources, i.e. Radiation Protection Officers or Acting RPOs. The payment of the course fee is R 4 800,00 per delegate (R 5 520,00 incl.VAT.) This includes course manuals, handouts, lunches, teas, parking and certificates. Payment with application or registration. No admittance without prior payment.

We cordially invite you and your organization to join the industry leaders at our 2019 Africa Drone Conference.The issue of regulations and drones’ certification and use is getting complicated with each year as technology continues to take the center stage the world over. In South Africa, prospective users of this technology are getting frustrated of having to wait for years to get their licences. Thus, the evolving regulatory environment in the country has no doubt affected the adoption of commercial drones in the country. However, on a positive note, drones are proving to be an indispensable technology as they are attesting their worth in the very different sectors. In this disruptive age, drones are proving to be the technology to adopt. Within the mining industry, the drones have facilitated the collection, and subsequent, processing, of more data than in the past, and this is pushing innovation mine-wide as data management processes are enhanced to ensure that other functional areas also benefit from the technology. Above all, the drones are boosting safety in the mines.Topics to be covered include:Drone use in agriculture,The dynamic use of security drones in mining environment, Importance of drones use in the municipalities,Crucial data collection for safety and security applications, Emerging risks and implications of using automated drones in the construction sector,Disaster Management,Surveys that can be done by drones, Criminal investigation and artificial intelligence,Photogrammetry practise and equipment,Utility inspections,survey and mapping, Drone insurance and Drone licencing.
