This study used the descriptive method employing the survey technique. A total of 58 respondents were included and they were selected using convenience sampling technique. The survey was accomplished using self-made questionnaire validated by experts from De La Salle Health Sciences Institute and De La Salle University Medical Center. Statistical tools employed were frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, coefficient of variation, F-test or ANOVA and Pearson’s r. Based on the findings, the following conclusions were drawn: (1) A large percentage of the respondents have 6-10 years of service; (2) The respondents are moderately aware on health risks from exposure to low level ionizing radiation; (3) The respondents always employ radiation protection practices in general, though there are specific areas of concern for not employing some practices such as budget, proper maintenance of equipment, and proper knowledge on radiation protection; (4) Regarding length of service, the respondents have the same level of awareness; (5) Regarding work experience, the radiation protection practices of the respondents are generally the same; (6) There is not enough evidence to conclude that relationship exists between the level of awareness on health risks from exposure to low level ionizing radiation and radiation protection practices of the respondents.
