Description

This workshop is intended to provide HPs, RPMs, RSOs, managers, and administrative staff with a clear understanding of radiation health risks and strategies to communicate that understanding to workers, especially those who may be near retirement age.

This workshop will prepare attendees for counseling workers and their families on the long-term potential for radiation effects that may be related to their occupational or medical radiation exposures. We will review the biological and technical basis for radiation risk assessment and probability of causation, including risk models, measures of risk, and radiation epidemiology studies based on references from BEIR, NCRP, ICRP, UNSCEAR, RERF, NRPB, EPA, and NRC. We will also review the history of liability cases involving radiation.

We will assess attendee’s communication styles with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, which will identify each person’s communication strengths and areas needing development. Each person will receive a solid technical understanding of radiation risks and the communication tools for effectively presenting that information to others.

This workshop was originally designed for workers at nuclear power plants and has since been broadened to include all categories of radiation workers. The instructors are  specialists in radiation risk communication and in radiation risk assessments.
