Radiation Protection in the Industrial Sector

Presented by: Kathy Lawrenson

Managing Director of McKavanagh Engineering Services Pty Ltd.

Involved in Industrial Radiation Safety for 22 years.   Working with our clients to assist them to meet their regulatory obligations, predominantly in Queensland.  Member of the Qld Radiation Advisory Council as an Industry Representative.  Elected Secretary of the Qld RSUG (Qld Radiation Safety Users Group) in 2004 and President of RSUG in March 2015. My focus as a consultant and President of the Users Group is to encourage a positive safety culture and continuing development of behaviours and values that support the safe and secure use of radiation sources in industry.

There are approximately 50 operating Coal Mines in Queensland and around 100 metalliferous mines. Geographically, Queensland is close to the largest developing markets in the world. Major mining-related centres in Queensland include Mount Isa, Mackay, Townsville, Gladstone and Rockhampton.  

90% of our work is carried out for the Qld Mining Industry and consists of Training for Radiation Safety Officers and Users, installation, commissioning and repair of nucleonic gauges, transport of sealed radioactive substances and auditing/compliance activities. The remaining 10% of our work is carried out across various sites in Papua New Guinea.
Finding suitably qualified people who are willing to work in the industrial sector remains one of our greatest challenges and we are one of only a handful of companies in Australia that provide a range of services in this area.
I’d like to provide a more detailed description of services provided and some interesting projects we have been involved in!
