Environmental Health & Safety
Improving the lives of people and preventing disease via the advancement of gamma irradiation is the singular focus of Nordion’s GCE. We are committed to ensuring environmental health and safety in our community.
We comply with all environmental, health and safety laws and regulations relevant to our operations, and other requirements to which Nordion’s GCE subscribes.
Prevention of Pollution
We protect the environment in which we operate and ensure safe working conditions and environmental integrity by using an environmental management system (EMS) and training designed to prevent pollution, prevent workplace injuries, and minimize risks to human health.
We protect our employees, neighbours and the environment. We keep exposure to radiation as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) — social and economic factors considered.

We continually review our operations to seek new opportunities for improving our EHS performance and promote a safety culture throughout the organization.
