Abstract General topics covered by this consultative document: radiation dose limits for exposed workers in the United Kingdom (5rem per year for the whole body); administrative measures for radiological protection (notification, authorisation, investigation of incidents, installation and contingency planning, record keeping); monitoring (personal and environmental); ways of reducing radiation dose. Radiation protection for specific areas is described for: radiography (with fluoroscopy and irradiation); x-ray crystallography (with spectrometry); measurement and detection devices; incidental radiation (electron-beam welding; CRTs); particle accelerators; research reactors; work with unsealed radioactive substances (storage, animal experiments, storage of radioactive wastes). Emergency procedures in case of radioactive material leakage or research reactor malfunction are outlined.
