Title Reference levels for naturally occurring radionuclides in the workplace
Bibliographic information Dec. 1998, No.208, p.11-15. 2 ref.
Abstract A methodology was developed to estimate doses to workers in industries in which enhanced levels of naturally occurring radionuclides are encountered. Results suggest that some degree of regulation may be required for many materials. A classification system is proposed which can be used to identify workplaces which require control. Topics: absorbed dose; radon; lead; thorium; uranium; radium; classification systems; conditions of exposure; exposure evaluation; ionizing radiation; permissible radiation doses; radiation protection; radioactive substances.
Descriptors (primary) ionizing radiation; radioactive substances; radiation protection
