INAIL mentioned MICADO as good practice of a digitization process.
The Istituto Nazionale per l’Assicurazione contro gli Infortuni sul Lavoro or INAIL (‘National Institute for Insurance against Accidents at Work’) is the Italian authority appointed to monitor and authorize the activities concerning ionizing radiation sources. Recently INAIL wants to update the procedures for handling industrial high activity sources. In particular, the aim of this update is:
- enhance safety procedures for workers,
- improve sources traceability,
- reduce the residual risk of errors.
MICADO is cited as an example of automatized and digitized procedure to monitor in all steps of the process all the item under investigation. This dematerialization of information has many pros.
INAIL points out how, thanks to automatized procedures, it would be possible to follow almost in real time the radioactive source both in location and usage. Another advantage lies in the RFID tagging infrastructure adopted in MICADO
In fact, this technology enables the possibility to measure and read the tag online, thanks to the RadHand.
