People who operate or work around X-ray devices on an irregular to regular basis.
An X-ray device generates ionising radiation via an electrical circuit. The X-ray device can be used for measurement or analysis of materials. Some examples of these devices are in use for baggage inspection used at airports and mineral sands analysis used mining.
The industries from which people attend are varied from emergency services, regulators, universities, hospitals, mines, paper mills, research institutions, radiation instrument detection manufacturers, factories, oil & petroleum, construction, Non Destructive Testing and defence.
