If you are a user of a ‘radiation generator’ i.e. your x-ray equipment there is now a requirement to ‘Register’ with the HSE under the new regulations that came into force on the 1st January 2018 – this must have been completed by 5th February 2018.
Under the Ionising Radiation Regulations 2017, employers must apply to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) before they start certain new work with ionising radiation.
This is known as the ‘graded approach’ as what you apply for depends on the size and likelihood of exposure.
Depending on the level of risk of the ionising radiation work you do you may need to apply to:
– get consent
The application can be submitted by an authorised employee. It can’t be submitted by a third party but they can advise you on your application.
