The National Nuclear Laboratory’s innovative radiation mapping device, RadBall, has been nominated for the IChemE Award for Innovation and Excellence in Health and Safety.The IChemE awards were set up to encourage, celebrate and reward innovation and excellence. They aim to recognised and promote organisations who make an outstanding contribution to safety, the environment, sustainable development and other aspects of the process industries.
In addition, RadBall inventor, Dr. Steve Stanley has been nominated for the GSK Young Engineer of the Year Award. Steve is delighted about the nomination but recognises he faces some tough competition: “These award nominations are a real honour for the National Nuclear Laboratory. RadBall wouldn’t have come about if it wasn’t for NNL’s foresight and ongoing investment in innovation. It’s great for the work we do to be recognised by this nomination. Of course I’d love to win but the work of the other nominees looks excellent, so I’ll just have to wait and see.”Steve will have to wait until 29th October when the results of the Award will be announced at a special awards ceremony in Birmingham.
