NORM stands for Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material. It refers to radioactive elements found naturally in the Earth’s crust, such as uranium, thorium, and their decay products. NORM can become concentrated in certain industrial processes, such as oil and gas production, leading to increased radiation exposure risks for workers and the need for special handling and disposal procedures. 

A Radiation Protection Adviser is a qualified expert who provides advice on complying with legal requirements and optimising radiation protection. Under IRR17, employers must consult with an RPA in various situations, such as when planning new work with ionising radiation or when there has been a significant change to existing work practices. 

The primary legislation governing radiation protection in the UK is the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17) and the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 (EPR16). These regulations set out the requirements for employers to protect employees and the public from the risks of ionising radiation exposure, as well as the management and disposal of radioactive waste. 

Radiation is the emission or transmission of energy in the form of waves or particles through space or a medium. There are two types of radiation: ionizing (e.g., X-rays, gamma rays) and non-ionising (e.g., radio waves, microwaves).  

Ionising radiation can cause damage to living tissues, while non-ionizing radiation is generally less harmful but can still pose risks at high levels of exposure.
