Industrial Radiation Safety 
Training - Consultancy - Source Supply & Disposal 



McKavanagh Engineering Services Pty Ltd was formed in 1998 by Byron McKavanagh

Byron trained as a geophysicist. His career in Radiation Safety commenced in Collinsville in 1984, as an assistant RSO during the RSOs absence on leave. This aroused Byron's interest directly and personally in the biological effects of low levels of ionising radiation.
Byron worked in related areas, for Scantech at various installations in the Bowen Basin (Goonyella-Riverside, Oaky Creek, Blair Athol, Collinsville, Tarong), and also for MIM, until 1987. On joining CQU, (then the Capricornia Institute of Advanced Education), Byron's interest continued. He commenced formal study in the area, and assumed responsibility for the Industrial Radiation Safety Courses in 1989.  During this period, Byron was the Radiation Safety Officer for the Department of Applied Physics, and the Radiation Officer for CQU.

Byron's work in this area, and in establishing the IRS User's Group, led to service on a Technical Sub-Committee of RAC into Licensing, and in 1997 as a member of the Radiological Advisory Council of Queensland, advising the Minister for Health, representing Industry in Queensland.

Our range of services has expanded in line with the needs of our clients.  We now operate out of premises located in Fernvale Qld where we have a fully equipped workshop and training facilities.
