IRPA Practical Guidance for Engagement with the Public on Radiation and Risk
The BVS-ABR working group communication has proposed to disseminate the draft of this future IRPA document as widely as possible, so that its members can provide their comments and suggestions, which should be addressed to the mailbox of the BVS-ABR at email@example.com, before January 15th.
“IRPA believes strongly that all radiation protection professionals and the radiation protection societies have a duty to engage with the public. We must play our part in helping address and alleviate concerns and ensure that solutions put forward really do address the perceptions, concerns and interests of those affected and involved.”
The purpose of this guidance document is twofold. First, to enthuse all of us in our profession to become more active public advocates for radiation protection. Second, to provide information, experiences and techniques to help us to become more effective and comfortable in this task.
