A Roane State graduate returned to his alma mater and spoke to students in associate professor Dan Hyder’s Safety and Emergency Response class.
UCOR field radiological protection manager Brad Ross was joined by the contractor's radiological protection manager, Rodney Bauman, for the talk at Roane State's Oak Ridge campus.
"They spoke to my class about the field of health physics," Hyder said. "They discussed the risks associated with radiation, the different types of careers and working environments, the history of the field, the positives of working in health physics, and how to prepare for a career and obtain employment."
Ross is a graduate of Roane State's environmental health technology program, and he has worked more than 25 years in health physics in Oak Ridge, Hyder said.
UCOR, an AECOM-led partnership with Jacobs, is under contract with the Department of Energy (DOE) to clean up East Tennessee Technology Park, a former gaseous diffusion plant that DOE is converting into a private sector industrial park. It also performs cleanup work at other DOE Oak Ridge Reservation locations, including Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Y-12 Nuclear Security Complex.
