Conferences are of many types. Some are intended to improve the manner in which businesses are done, some aim to improve the company relations at all levels, while others may help teach better ways of doing business. But aside from these, there are certain conferences which focus on the social responsibilities of the business houses towards the society and also towards their own employees. IM conferences are one such social conference, which aims to inculcate a sense of responsibility in the minds and hearts of the participants towards the plight of the personnel exposed to various forms of radiations.
Types Of Exposures
The exposure from the radiations can be both internal as well as external. The effects of both these forms of exposures are quite dangerous and hence it is important that the companies take note of both these exposure forms. The personnel should be checked for both internal as well as external radiation effects and symptoms. The concept of dosimetry should be clearly understood in order to apply it effectively in getting correct results from the tests for radiations.
Coverage Of IM Conferences
These conferences are nothing more than a reference meeting on individual monitoring. The aim of these meetings is to instill a sense a responsibility in the participants towards their employees so that in future they take improved and correct measures for the monitoring and treatment of radiation affected personnel. Increasing the feeling of humanity through harmonizing the efforts of various people is what is intended to be achieved through these conferences. Understanding the procedure for monitoring the exposure to radiation and radioactive material, compliance with the set occupational dose limits, taking immediate preventive actions in case of emergencies, maintain dose records and correct reporting of the data are some of the key topics discussed at these conferences.
Increasing Awareness About Individual Monitoring
These conferences also actively discuss the various methods through which the awareness about individual monitoring can be increased in the whole world. Various options of providing education and training on this topic are explored. Developing of networks to spread the message effectively is also worked upon.These conferences fulfill a very big social responsibility. But these conferences are not all about serious discussions. Like any other conference lunches, drinks and dinner parties are an important part of these conferences. Also some really good contacts can be developed here, since all big companies are showing an interest in individual monitoring and hence actively participating in these conferences.
