To find out if radioactive isotopes are safe or not, let’s break down what they are first. Radioactive isotopes are basically unstable chemical elements that release energy in the form [ ]. Each experiment with radioactive substances should be reported to the HSE Department in advance (see also “Procedures for handling ionizing radiation”).

Once an overall description of the experiment has been provided, the HSE Department will provide specific guidelines for workplace safety, health protection and environmental protection.

The JRIA was made into a public utility corporation by the government of Japan. Founded in Founder: Yoshio Nishina, Seiji Kaya, Taro Takemi.Substitution of the radioisotopes under the Laws Concerning the Prevention from Radiation Hazards due to Radioisotope and others to NORMs can be successfully achieved without notable demerits.
