We report experimental results on the identification of rational surfaces in the Reversed Field Pinch (RFP) plasma core. The position of rational surfaces has been obtained from tomographic measurements of the m = 1 structure which develops during Quasi-Single Helicity (QSH) states. These results allow the estimate of the safety factor profile, which is measured for the first time in a RFP with plasma current ≈ 1 MA.
