Order to Tomlinson Enterprises Ltd.

Today, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) announced that it issued an order on March 11, 2016 to Tomlinson Enterprises Ltd., a company based in Sarnia, ON, that provides testing services to the industrial sector. The company currently holds a CNSC licence authorizing the possession and use of nuclear substances contained in industrial radiography exposure devices, for the purpose of materials testing.

The order was issued following a CNSC inspection at a worksite in Sarnia. The inspection identified non-compliances related to the implementation of the licensee’s radiation protection program, including providing required training to workers and appropriately maintaining exposure devices. The order prohibits Tomlinson Enterprises Ltd. from operating its exposure devices until it implements corrective measures and addresses all non-compliances.

The CNSC requires these measures to protect the health and safety of workers, the public and the environment.
