Health Physics Society Public Information

Public Information

Do you have questions about radiation, radioactive materials, or radiation safety?

The Health Physics Society is dedicated to providing information for you so that you can better understand these subjects.

To help you to better understand our field of health physics (radiation safety), we have developed a number of Fact Sheets and a List of Radiation Definitions.

In addition, a large number of questions about the Society, radiation protection, or the field of health physics have already been answered on the interactive list of "Ask the Experts" Questions and Answers page. If you do not see an answer to your questions, you can "Ask the Experts."

We also sponsor another website that is dedicated to public education (www.radiationanswers.org). This site contains scientific and objective information about radiation in a friendly, easy-to-read format.
