Meet the team: Radiation Protection advisors

With over 20 years of experience, our competence team on radiation protection has the reputation of being a reliable business partner. The team is led by radiation protection advisor Sandra van den Eeden. In this article Sandra introduces the team, tells about her daily activities as a consultant for Philips Innovation Services, and what drives her.

In the Radiation Protection Group, we have four registered radiation protection experts with various backgrounds that enthusiastically support a wide variety of organizations.

We support some organizations with work floor supervision and operational activities. For other organizations we are involved in policy making, auditing and setting up a management system.

In general: we can help with any question as long as radiation safety is the topic.

Daan de Leeuw has been working at Philips for over 14 years. He began his career in the dangerous goods department where he was responsible for the management of Safety Data Sheets and supporting correct transportation of chemicals.

We were happy to welcome him in the team of radiation protection advisors when it was his time for something new. His focus is now on radiation safety and his knowledge of transportation regulation and SDS’s is often called upon by colleagues.

After many years of focusing on auditing, training, and consultancy on general safety, he joined Philips in 2008. Eventually he decided to pick up radiation safety again.

Sandra van den Eeden

Like Tanja, I also used to work in healthcare, in the nuclear medicine department of the Jeroen Bosch Ziekenhuis in Den Bosch. I did my best to diversify my responsibilities as much as possible and added radiation safety to the mix after completing my training in 2009.

After getting a bit restless I joined the Philips radiation protection unit. Philips offers you great opportunities to learn and grow and in time the possibility arose to lead the consultancy team and manage radiation safety for Philips.

The work we do is very diverse and we connect with so many people on a daily basis. From legislators to management and individual employees, we interact with a wide variety of people.

These interactions make the job of radiation protection advisor so interesting. We go from days of meticulously preparing license applications to doing site visits for audits, inspections and measurements.

It makes us happy if we can offer efficient support that leaves our clients feeling safe and carefree with the security of compliance.

 

Our radiation protection services

According to Dutch legislation, every organization using ionizing radiation should have a registered radiation protection expert. For clinics, there is an extra requirement to have a medical physics expert on board.

Unfortunately for some companies and clinics, it is often difficult to fulfill these requirements. Our consultancy team has many years of experience in tackling these challenges. Our experienced radiation protection advisors support industrial companies, hospitals, and clinics with all aspects necessary to be compliant with Dutch legislation.

“We help you to be compliant, while you can focus on your business”

Our certified consultants are equipped with extensive expertise in industry and healthcare and know all about radiation protection.

Our registered radiation protection experts provide dedicated advice and can assist companies acquiring their Nuclear power act (KEW) permit, conduct risk assessments, set up a KEW-file as well as help implement all practical aspects of Dutch radiation protection regulations.
