Frequently Asked Questions

HPS Standards are guidelines and best practices developed by the Health Physics Society to promote safety in occupational and environmental radiation exposure. These standards cover a range of topics, including radiation protection protocols, instrumentation calibration, and safety procedures. Designed to support professionals in the field, HPS Standards are based on the latest scientific research and industry expertise. They help organisations maintain compliance with regulatory requirements, improve safety measures, and promote effective radiation protection practices. By adhering to HPS Standards, businesses and institutions can safeguard the health and safety of workers and the public.

HPS Standards are crucial in maintaining the safety and protection of individuals and the environment from radiation exposure. They provide guidelines and best practices for radiation protection in various settings, including occupational and environmental contexts. HPS Standards are utilised by professionals in industries such as healthcare, nuclear energy, research, and manufacturing to develop and implement effective radiation safety protocols. By adhering to HPS Standards, organisations can mitigate risks, comply with regulations, and safeguard both personnel and the public from the harmful effects of radiation.

HPS Standards are owned and maintained by the Health Physics Society (HPS), a scientific organisation established in 1956 to specialise in radiation safety. As an independent nonprofit scientific organisation chartered in the United States, HPS operates autonomously from government, industrial organisations, or private entities. Its members, representing various scientific and technical fields related to radiation safety, operate nationwide, spanning academia, government, healthcare, research, consulting, and industry sectors. Through education, training, and scientific exchange, HPS upholds excellence in radiation safety practices across diverse fields and geographical regions.
