||Occupational exposure to ionizing radiation occurs in the following situations: when using radioactive sources; when using materials containing radioactive elements for their properties unrelated to their radioactivity; in the presence of natural radioactivity at the worksite; as a result of an industrial accident or incident. Given the potential hazards, the first step in any prevention effort is to conduct a hazard evaluation that takes into account the industrial process and human exposure conditions, followed by the implementation of measures aimed at controlling both the risks of contamination by radioactive substances and the risk of exposure to ionizing radiation.
