Observatory’s “Radiation Monitoring & Assessment Branch” Establishing QMS天文台“辐射监测及评估科”建立品质管理体系

Updated: Oct 16, 2018

To ensure that our environment is not adversely affected by the operation of the nuclear power stations at Daya Bay, the Hong Kong Observatory (HKO) implements an environmental radiation monitoring programme since 1987.


Radiation monitoring network consisting of 12 fixed radiation monitoring stations, and each stations installed a High Pressure Ionization Chamber (HPIC) which is very sensitive and can detect small changes in radiation level. The collected data and sample will then be further analysed.


In order to further enhance the quality of the gamma radiation measuring service, HKO invited TQM to help to establish a Quality Management System (QMS).


HKO’s ambient gamma radiation level measurement results not only as a protection for HK citizen, but also can reflect whether the operation of the nuclear power stations is under safe conditions. The result and the related information are available for public via HKO website and various channels.

香港天文台于1987年推行了环境辐射监测计划,主要用来监测香港的环境伽马辐射水平,以确保大亚湾核电站的运作不会对香港的环境造成不良影响,保障市民健康。


辐射监测网络由12个固定监测站组成,每个监测站均设有灵敏度极高的高压电离室数据,能量度环境辐射水平的微弱变化。收集的数据和样本会再进一步详细分析,确保市民的健康得到保障。


为了进一步提升伽马辐射水平测量服务的品质,天文台聘请了优质管理顾问有限公司(TQM)协助建立品质管理体系,使环境伽马辐射测量结果能更有效评估及反映香港的辐射状况。


监测结果不但有助保障市民的健康,亦能反映核电站是否在安全情况下运作。市民可透过香港天文台网页等不同渠道查阅相关资讯和结果。
