To improve the knowledge on security management and risk reduction strategies of radioactive sources, AEC worked with NNSA (National Nuclear Security Administration) to invite four experts from related field to hold a workshop on Risk Reduction Strategies for the Security of Radioactive Cesium-137.
The issues of this workshop mainly included the potential risk analysis, security management and risk reduction strategies of radioactive sources. More than 30 participants from AEC, AEC affiliated units and related licensees attended this workshop. During this workshop, the experts shared their experience on security management and other alternative technologies. The attendees also discussed with experts about the security reduction strategies and the emerging challenge. This workshop has brought new insights to us and helped AEC to improve security management of radioactive sources.
