Radiation Protection Technicians
Radiation protection technicians protect workers, the general public, and the environment from overexposure to radiation. Many of their activities are highly technical: They measure radiation and radioactivity levels in work areas and in the environment by collecting samples of air, water, soil, plants, and other materials; they record test results and inform the appropriate personnel when tests reveal deviations from acceptable levels; they help power plant workers set up equipment that automatically monitors processes within the plant and records deviations from established radiation limits; and they calibrate and maintain such equipment using hand tools.
