Since 2011, Quality Inspectors Limited (QIL) has operated a Personal Radiation Monitoring Service (PRMS) for measuring doses that people who are occupationally exposed to radiation may receive. QIL PRMS helps client organizations to both, determine the monthly dose received by each employee exposed to radioactive material, as well as establish whether the amount of radiation received by these individuals is well below the recommended limits.
Today, as part of our PRMS, QIL issues and processes over (add number here) radiation dosimeters a year. These go to approximately (number here) different employer sites in the east Africa region, covering (Number here) individuals in total. Our customers come from wide range of sectors that include, (add the different sectors here) – and range in size from a few monitored personnel to a few thousand.
