Environmental Health & Safety Diagram


We comply with all environmental, health and safety laws and regulations relevant to our operations, and other requirements to which Nordion 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.

Continuous Improvement

We continually review our operations to seek new opportunities for improving our EHS performance and promote a safety culture throughout the organization. Read Nordion’s Environmental Health & Safety Policy in its entirety.
