A resource to occupational radiation safety professionals within the DOE community.
Network of personnel from the DOE complex involved in sharing occupational radiation safety and health information Sponsored by the DOE Office of Worker Safety and Health Policy (HS-10) Managed by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education 2
Provide resources through a website to improve worker S&H within the DOE complex http://www.orau.gov/rpsig/index.html Maintain the DOE Technology Supported Learning Index http://www.orau.gov/eh/training/tsl_Index/tsl_inde x.htm Share information through the RP SIG Listserv email tool 3
