Safety and Safety Culture

 

The establishment and maintenance of a Safety Management System supported by a Safety Culture environment in medical imaging and radiation therapy are essential requirements to ensure the safety of patients, the public and fellow colleagues and other staff members of the healthcare team.

The ISRRT supports radiographers and radiological technologists in this task bearing in mind that the establishment and maintenance of Safety Management Systems and Safety Culture is primarily a management responsibility. However, it is recognised that everyone employed in the imaging and therapy fields has a particular role to play to ensure that both safety and safety culture is maintained.

The ISRRT will be providing helpful guides to promote Safety and Safety Culture.
