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.
