My favourite part of the job is getting to access all areas of the site, it never grows old. Knowing that my job matters and is key to supporting the fusion research is what gets me up in the morning! Another part that I enjoy is that we have to control the shielded doors - they are very thick - and we have to make sure that when the machine is pulsing that there is no extra dose if you are nearby. We ensure doses are kept way lower than the legal limits and we try to work to even higher standards than the law requires.
My job is to ensure that radiation protection and safety measures are in place so that the entire plant is safe. I have an access all areas pass, which means one day I might be working in the fusion machine hall, while another day I might be working in the materials research facility.
