Mike Jones Radiation Protection Advisor at Magnox Winfrith


I started my career in radiation protection in January 2007 as a Health Physics Technician working at JET, Culham. I spent almost two years in this role gaining valuable practical experience before progressing to a Trainee Health Physicist role at what was UKAEA (later to become RSRL and then Magnox) in August 2008 primarily based at Harwell. During this period I undertook an MSc in Radiation and Environmental Protection graduating in 2010. From 2010 I have been an accredited Health Physicist in the Winfrith Site providing advice to a variety of projects but primarily to the Dragon decommissioning project for which I have been the principal Health Physicist since November 2011. This project has covered a raft of decommissioning challenges for which I have provided radiological advice at the design and operational phase. I became a certificated Radiation Protection Advisor in September 2014
