Working Safely with Portable Gauges
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidelines on the safe handling and use of portable nuclear gauges.


Gauges are used in industries such as agriculture, construction and civil engineering to measure moisture and compaction levels in soil and asphalt density in paving mixes.


Two types of radiation are used in gauges: gamma and neutron.


Working with portable gauges presents no major health dangers or significant risks if basic safety precautions are taken and common sense is used. By following proper safety procedures, using effective radiation protection principles, and helping others to do likewise, the workplace will remain safe at all times.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to industrial engineers and professionals who are interested in learning about portable gauges and the safety measures to operate them.
