Safety By HSE
ScanTech has comprehensive Health, Safety and Environmental policies which are integral to our daily operations. HSE are key areas we focus on to control risks, manage performance and take initiatives for continuous improvement. Safety is our number one priority.
ScanTech is regulated by governmental bodies to ensure compliance with standards and policies related to radioactive materials including their use, storage and transportation. These regulations specify how we perform our activities to keep our employees and the general public from receiving excessive doses of radiation.
We always adhere to the ALARA priciple – As Low As Reasonably Achievable.
Dosimetry to measure radiation exposure is worn by all of our workers. The total radiation exposure is measured and recorded by the national dose registry on a quarterly basis. ScanTech also has electronic dosimeters available so we can measure the dose to any individual during a specific activity.
Survey meters are on all job sites to ensure that radiation fields are properly barricaded.
Training & Associations
Each of ScanTech’s employees undertakes many hours of safety training each year. Some of the required training includes:
- Radiation Safety
- Transportation of Dangerous Goods
- First Aid / CPR

- And many others…..
In addition to the general training, we also undertake site specific training at each of our customer sites. ScanTech employees always follow the most stringent of safety policies whether they be ScanTech’s policies, government regulations or customer specific policies.
ScanTech has been operating for over 10 years with no Lost Time Incidents and our ongoing goal is to maintain this coveted statistic.
