  • Assist in the development and implementation of EHS policies, procedures, and programs to promote a safe and healthy work environment.
  • Conduct EHS training sessions for employees to raise awareness and promote adherence to safety protocols.
  • Participate in incident investigations and root cause analyses to identify corrective actions and prevent recurrence.
  • Monitor EHS performance metrics and prepare reports for management review, identifying trends and areas for improvement.
  • Liaise with regulatory agencies, auditors, and external stakeholders to ensure compliance with EHS regulations and standards.

Education:

  • Bachelor’s degree in health physics, medical physics, nuclear engineering, or related field preferred; relevant experience in a Radiation Safety capacity may be substituted.
  • Certification by a recognized specialist board such as the National Registry of Radiation Protection Technologists (NRRPT) is advantageous.

Experience:

  • Five (5) years of progressive work experience in radiation safety, with at least two (2) years in a regulatory designation of radiation safety officer role in operations, research, or university environments.
