RADIOLOGICAL PROTECTION SERVICE
Radiation is constantly present in our lives, such as for instance, cosmic rays, infrared and ultraviolet rays, X-ray medical and dental examination and natural radiation issued by Earth. We also find radioactive elements in food and in the human body. However, some types of radiation require control and precaution due to the biological risks that they may cause.
Considering the activities developed by EBCO in the secure inspection area, such as operation and maintenance of equipment that emit ionizing radiation, it is necessary to comply with the rules and directives issued by the National Nuclear Energy Commission – CNEN – for the services rendered in Brazil.
EBCO’s radiological protection service controls all radioactive premises assisted by EBCO, its collaborators and the public that visits such areas. In such manner, the proper radiological protection standard is assured.
EBCO‘s employees are continuously trained and certified to render the services of containers and load inspection. The team of employees of EBCO’s radioprotection services has radiological protection supervisors certified by the CNEN in particle accelerators and industrial radiography.
