On Demand: Radiation Shielding Seminar - LKAB Minerals

With Covid-19 and social distancing preventing live events in 2020, we decided to take our event online!

Day three (Wednesday) of the Civil Engineering Solutions for Infrastructure Seminar week focussed on Radiation Shielding.

A focus on Radiological Protection

Wednesday’s session focussed on Radiation Shielding, beginning with a keynote speech from Jim Thurston, Head of Medical Physics and Healthcare Technology for the NHS, based at Dorset County Hospital and representing the Society for Radiological Protection. This event also featured guest speakers; Steve Haslam, Engineering Design Consultant, Magnox; Jill Reay, Director and Radiation Protection Adviser at Aurora; and Jim Fleming, Technical Director at Fairhurst.

About the seminar week

This event follows the success of our first seminar last year, only this time it is took place virtually in September 2020!

With a focus on modern day civil engineering challenges, the event featured civil engineering and construction experts across a range of applications. Each day, part of the focus was also be on how the use of high density concrete and ballast has provided the optimum solution.

Every session followed a different civil engineering solution, with guest speakers from across the sector. Each seminar ran for two hours and each day is available to watch on demand via the events tab.
