ARPS inspires future workforce
Inspiring the region’s future workforce has earned ARPS a special award.
The company has pledged its support for Developing the Young Workforce, a project aimed at bringing fresh and exciting new talent into local companies.
ARPS director Penny Wade took part in two careers fairs at Westhill and Meldrum academies earlier this year, providing advice to pupils considering a career in radiation protection.
Participation in both events has earned ARPS a Developing the Young Workforce Certificate of School Engagement.
ARPS will continue its support of the scheme by taking part in further careers fairs this autumn.
Merry Chistmas and Happy New Year!
All of us at ARPS would like to take this opportunity to wish our Clients a very Merry Christmas and when it comes, a Happy New Year!
Richard Smith Awarded Certification
Richard Smith has been awarded his Radiation Protection Adviser Certification. The certification process requires lots of study and completing a portfolio of work covering all aspects of the implementation of the Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999. The certificates are awarded by an HSE approved body – RPA2000 after the portfolio has been audited and passed.
Richard is the third RPA we have trained within ARPS.
Matthew Firth - New Trainee Adviser
We have a new trainee adviser - Matthew Firth. Matthew has joined us after completing his PhD at Aberdeen University. He had previously completed his Medical Physics training so will help in advising users of x-rays and unsealed sources. Matthew’s first trip to an oil production installation was in Mauritania.
Healthy Working Lives Award
We have been awarded the Healthy Working Lives Bronze Award by NHS Grampian. For this we did activities including cookery (at Nick Nairn’s) and safe driving at Absafe which were great fun. We have now started our Silver Award and already booked a session to try curling.
Rory Jamieson Awarded Certification
Rory Jamieson has now been awarded his Radioactive Waste Adviser certification to go along with his RPA certificate which he was awarded earlier in 2016. The RWA advises on the management and disposal of radioactive waste for compliance with RSA93 and EPR10.
