A brief introduction to Radiation safety
Our own Radiation safety Officer, George N. Hamawy published a book title “A brief introduction to Radiation safety” this month (October 2007).
This brief text offers an introduction to basic principles of radiation and the safe use of radioactive materials in laboratories. It is useful for students, technicians, and educators as a tool to be applied toward protection of self and others by minimizing radiation exposure while handling radioactive materials. The text is written in a clear and simple language and is suitable for scientists whose second language is English.
