An oil and gas company has been fined $162,500 after a worker at a Queensland drilling site was burned when exposed to unsafe levels of radiation.

The court heard the worker received leg burns when he was exposed to an unshielded radioactive source during a borehole logging operation at a coal seam gas site in February 2014.

Magistrate Elizabeth Hall found Schlumberger, the world's largest provider of technology to the oil and gas industry, failed to ensure adequate safeguards were in place when radiation sources were used.

"We work closely with businesses that use radiation to ensure safety measures are in place and implemented, but this result shows that we will not hesitate to take strong regulatory measures when there is a concern for people's safety," Dr Young said.
