Course Description

While the codes of conduct maintained by both the Health Physics Society (HPS) and the American Academy of Health Physics (AAHP) provide valuable ethical guidance, they do not taxonomically catalog the types of ethical dilemmas a radiation safety practitioner might encounter in their daily work. This presentation will describe three very common ethical dilemmas encountered by the profession and provide possible resolutions for consideration. The linkage between safety ethics and safety culture will then be presented and discussed. The session will then transition to an open discussion regarding the consideration of a possible requirement for documented ethics retraining each renewal cycle for Certified Health Physicists, as is becoming common practice for several other professional safety organizations.
