Wednesday | One Day Workshop: Dr. Andrew Karam

Wednesday, July 31st | Radiation Instrumentation & Emergency Response Workshop: 11:00am – 5:00pm

This series of breakout sessions is a continuation of Tuesday’s Radiation Safety Awareness Training course. The session will begin with advanced information about radiation instruments and how they can be used during a radiological emergency response. Afterward time will be spent with hands-on experience using these instruments.


About Dr. Andrew Karam

Dr. Andrew Karam, spent over a decade working as a rad/nuke scientist and subject matter expert with the New York City Police Department’s Counterterrorism Division, the New York City Fire Department, and the New York City Health Department — his work included not only developing operational plans, but also giving training to New York’s cops and firefighters. He is nationally and internationally recognized for his expertise in this area — as well as for the quality of his instruction. 

During these two days, Dr. Karam will not only teach you the basics you need to know about radiation and radiation safety, but will also give you hands-on experience with radiation instruments to get a feel for how they work, how to use them in the classroom, and how to use them in some emergency response scenarios. This could be a fire in a university “hot” lab, an overturned radiopharmaceutical delivery vehicle, or a criminal who breaks into a facility to try to steal a high-activity research or industrial irradiator. Regardless of the event and its severity there is one common factor — emergency responders will need to work in a radiological environment and they need to know how to do so safely.


Come see our Product Offerings in our Demo Room Wednesday – Friday. Product experts will be available to answer any questions.
