Concrete X-Ray Guidelines
At the time of concrete inspection, our crew utilizes radioactive materials type Iridium 192. Prior to any inspection, the following guidelines must be met in order for our technicians to proceed with work.
International Inspection, Inc. is a licensed inspection firm with the State and has been performing this type of inspections on a daily basis since 1987. All technicians of International Inspection, Inc. have successfully completed a State approved Radiation Health and Safety Training Program and all technicians have been approved by the State to perform such inspections based on education and performance. A two-man crew performs all inspections with one person on each side of the concrete slab being x-rayed to maintain our safe boundaries. Prior to x-raying, our two-man crew will establish the required safe boundaries using “Caution Radiation Area” yellow banner tape. At the time of exposure each person on either side of the concrete slab/wall monitors the barriers to assure no one from the general public enters our “Radiation Area”. Should someone need to enter the area to get to their vehicle or other personal belongings the crew is in constant radio communication and could stop the x-raying and allow the person to briefly enter with no harm.
At International Inspection, Inc. we have on staff State approved Radiation Safety Officers for job walks or to be on site to assure the safety of all members of the general public should there be any concern. Should a Radiation Safety Officer be requested, an additional charge will apply.
These are the basic guidelines, if you or any other person should have technical questions, please contact us.
