SensaWeb’s Radiation Protection in QLD

SensaWeb is recognized for its real-time Radiation Area Monitoring which caters to several industries operating in spaces with radiation-producing machinery like X-ray machines and irradiators.

Its technology simplifies regulatory reporting and compliance, ensures safety and increases staff assurance, which results in a more efficient and productive workplace. 

SensaWeb’s innovative concept started over 10 years ago when Simon Turner was decommissioning a nuclear reactor and found out that the radiation monitoring units in the area weren’t working. The lack of real-time radiation monitoring and reporting risked the safety of the staff and Turner saw it as a critical issue. Together with Darren Oliver, co-founder and CTO, Turner developed SensaWeb which provides radiation data in real-time using custom-built sensors and a data analytics platform.

Free QLD Radiation Monitor Project

With the backing of the Advance Queensland Ignite Ideas grant, SensaWeb is offering a free-of-charge trial implementation of radiation monitoring.  This free radiation monitor project is for hospitals or health centres in Queensland. 

SensaWeb’s solution allows you to see immediately, and on any device, the levels of radiation exposure in the areas where the monitors are placed, while also automatically generating the reports required by the government regulatory authorities.  The sensors operate on the 4G network, so there’s no need to connect to your internal networks, and are as simple to install as plugging into a power point!
