Radiation Protection of Itinerant Workers

This publication addresses the protection and safety issues associated with the use of itinerant workers. Such workers are defined for this report as occupationally exposed workers, who work in supervised and/or controlled areas at one or more locations and are not employees of the management of the facility where they are working. It focuses on the necessary communication and cooperation to establish a clear allocation of responsibilities among the relevant parties, including the itinerant worker, the employer of that worker and the management of the facility at which the work is occurring. Managerial and practical arrangements are described, to ensure the protection and safety of itinerant workers. Discussion topics include dose tracking and control, training, safety culture development and application of the requirements for protection and safety coherently with other requirements.

International Health and Safety at Work

The second edition of International Health and Safety at Work has been specially written in simple English for the thousands of students who complete the NEBOSH International Certificate in Health and Safety each year. Fully updated and matched to the March 2011 syllabus, this course book provides students with all they need to tackle the course with confidence. Full colour pages and over 200 illustrations bring health and safety to life. Each chapter starts with learning outcome summaries and ends with questions taken from recent NEBOSH examinations. Specimen answers and a study skills chapter are also included to aid exam preparation. Endorsed by NEBOSH for the International General Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety. Provides all the material students need for the course including tables, forms and checklists that can be used for health and safety activities such as risk assessment Gives a unique summary of Occupational Health and Safety legal frameworks in over 20 countries including the EU and USA plus details of several ILO conventions and recommendations which are useful to students and a wide range of managers This NEBOSH-endorsed textbook introduces the reader to the fundamentals of health and safety in the workplace from an international perspective. The book not only meets the needs of students on the NEBOSH course but remains a useful reference for all managers who work to international standards and need to adapt them to local needs and practice. Phil Hughes MBE, MSc, CFIOSH, is a former Chairman of NEBOSH (1995-2001), former President of IOSH (1990-1991) and runs his own consultancy. He received an MBE for services to health and safety and as director of RoSPA in the New Year's Honours List 2005. Ed Ferrett PhD, BSc (Hons Eng), CEng, MIMechE, MIET, CMIOSH, is a former Vice Chairman of NEBOSH (1999-2008) and a lecturer on various NEBOSH health and safety courses. He is a Chartered Engineer and a health and safety consultant.

Applying Radiation Safety Standards in Nuclear Medicine

This report is intended to be of assistance to both regulators and users of radiation sources in nuclear medicine applying the International Basic Safety Standards for Protection against Ionizing Radiation and for the Safety of Radiation Sources (BSS). Regulators will find it useful for reviewing applications for authorization and for inspection. Users of radiation in nuclear medicine may follow the guidance provided in order to comply with the BSS requirements or the equivalent national requirements.

An Introduction to Radiation Protection

This highly-readable account of the nature of the hazards presented by ionizing radiation and the methods of protection is an ideal introductory text for those new to the field, and for the non-specialist. The seventh edition continues to cover the technical principles underlying the control of radiation hazards, radiation detection and measurement and the biological effects of radiation, followed by a consideration of industry-specific radiation protection issues. Further specialised topics include risk assessment, waste management and decommissioning, radiological emergencies, relevant legislation and organizational issues and, new to this edition, environmental radiation protection.

Occupational Radiation Protection

The term "occupational exposure" refers to the radiation exposure incurred by a worker which is attributable to the worker's occupation and received or committed during a period of work. The International Basic Safety Standards for Protection against Ionizing Radiation and for the Safety of Radiation Sources (BSS) establish a system of radiation protection of which the provisions for occupational exposure are a substantial component. It should be noted, however, that radiation protection is only one factor that must be addressed in order to protect the worker's overall health and safety. The occupational radiation protection programme should be established and managed in coordination with other health and safety disciplines.

The Future Policy for Radiological Protection

The international system of radiological protection is currently being revised with the aim of making it more coherent and concise. The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) has published its draft reflections on the system's evolution, and has opened discussions with the radiological protection community in order to seek a broad range of stakeholder input. These proceedings present a significant block of stakeholder input, comprising the views of policy makers, regulators, radiological protection professionals, industry and representatives of both non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations.

Occupational Radiation Protection

The present Safety Guide provides general guidance on the establishment of an effective radiation protection programme for occupational exposure, appropriate for the sources of radiation likely to be encountered in a range of industries, medical institutions, educational and research establishments and nuclear fuel cycle facilities. The report further provides the necessary guidance to meet the requirements as laid down in Safety Series No. 115, International Basic Safety Standards for Protection against Ionizing Radiation and for the Safety of Radiation Sources (1996).
