EPE Maintenance Manager Dean Dickson, and Maintenance Engineer, Dayne Hawkes, have successfully completed advanced training in the field of Radiation Safety. The training was provided by the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation(ANSTO), the premier training provider of radiation training in the Oceania region.
The training was conducted at ANSTO’s Open Pool Australian Lightwater Reactor Facility (OPAL) in Lucas Heights, Sydney. This is home to the only active nuclear reactor in in the Oceania region. Here they compounded their skill sets in numerous disciplines, including: Radiation Safety Theory, Radiation Working Practices and Methods to deal with Radiation Emergencies. These skills will add to the extensive knowledge our maintenance team already have in Non Destructive Testing and Industrial Radiography, in order to provide a world class maintenance service to our customers.
