A starting point could be a look at what NIH NLM's REMM (Radiation Emergency Medical Management) resource offers   For example, one section of REMM is about "Other Audiences" and includes the following content:

Other Audiences

=B7       First Responders in the Field

=B7       Mental Health Professionals

=B7       Hospital Staff

=B7       Public Information Officers

=B7       Radiation Safety Officers

=B7       Planners: Preparedness and Response

=B7       Trainers: Practices and Drills

=B7       Public Health Officers

=B7       Legal Advisors

=B7       Senior Leaders

=B7       Veterinarians

=B7       Medical Examiners / Coroners

=B7       Public Health Emergency Researchers

Hi, all,

I am getting ready to start a new job where I will need to deal with radioactive materials.  Can anybody direct me to some resources where I can find out about safety rules and regulations for such substances?


Thank you for any help you may offer.
