Radiation Safety

At Gilligan Engineering, we take the safety of our user very seriously. We make sure that when we design our products, safety is the main aim. Due to the nature of Gamma Radiography, there are many potential dangers. Therefore it is important to use safety equipment that is reliable, tough and up to the job. Radiation safety can inlcude lead shielding such as our GammaShield, which drastically reduces scatter radiation; through to our large range of dose rate monitors, personal and area alarms.


As part of the requirement placed on you by the Ionising Radiation Regulations you should have a dedicated emergency kit. The kit should contain all the equipment required to effect an isotope retrieval as laid out in your contingency plans.

Sensibly the kit should be limited to equipment that you don’t have on site already and equipment you definitely require to retrieve a trapped isotope.
