Emergency Worker–Level 2
Level 2 (EmW-2): involved in subsequent activities of radiation levels assessment and decontamination involved in facilities characterised by lowest radiological risks, across all Sectors (industrial, research, medical, etc.).
Level 2 EmWs would potentially be required to operate in subsequent accidental situation phases (once inherent fire suppression systems have a fire, for example). They should be able to measure radiation and to take appropriate actions in case decontamination is required. Additionally, the training should include more complex elements of radiation detection and measurement.
At the end of the workshop, learners will be able to respond to emergencies in a quick, safe and responsible manner, in accordance to agreed plans and in line with Emergency Response established policies, standards and procedures, to ensure that best Radiation Protection practices are maintained.
At the end of the Training Program, the learner will be able to: Provide Emergency Response services to the organization.
