RSK’s radiological services combine expertise in radiological protection and risk with the group’s entire environmental technical capabilities.
Naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM) are present in low concentrations in the Earth’s crust. The materials are released into the atmosphere through human activities, such as oil and gas exploration or mining, and through natural processes like radon gas leaking into the atmosphere. Through our highly qualified radiation protection staff, we provide NORM technical consultancy, surveying and monitoring services, which are invaluable to a client seeking regulatory compliance and a safe working environment.
Providing expert analyses and protection
RSK’s radiological division, including specialist teams RSK Radiological and RSK Response, have extensive experience of providing expert NORM services and radiological and waste management technical consultancy and engineering on national and international scales. For existing and new builds, we provide permitting, licensing and technical support, and characterising and clearing material to support decommissioning, plus our NORM surveys and consultancy. Our diverse client base seeks to identify and manage radiation risk. We have delivered cost-effective solutions ranging from in-situ field survey assessments through to large-scale quantitative radiological risk assessments.
Although our clients come from diverse sectors like oil and gas, government and commercial, they request specific services such as identifying and managing radiation risk and reassuring their site workers of regulatory compliance. Our highly qualified radiation protection staff have access to a single-source solution through the provision of additional complementary services in the RSK group. We are accredited to the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 standards for quality, environmental, and health and safety management. Our in-house UKAS- and MCERTS-accredited environmental and geotechnical laboratories can analyse soil and water samples for the broad range of analysis required on nuclear facilities. To ensure regulatory compliance, we provide consultancy and field-based expertise across a wide range of industries to help with NORM-related hazards and to meet regulatory requisites. Although our clients are primarily tier 1 contractors, government agencies and property developers, we have the experience and readily available technical experts to offer our extensive services to any client.
Our responsive radiological teams are primed to respond nationally and internationally for radiation protection and NORM services. We employ technical experts in radiation protection and regulatory compliance, which ensure your project will meet all prerequisites. We offer a responsive and collaborative approach to prevent and/or minimise project time.
