Public exposure to radiation sources: 1 mSv y −1: Estimated average doses to the relevant critical groups of members of the public that are attributable to practices, in addition to natural radiation exposure: Public exposure under special circumstances: 5 mSv.

The Shielding Principle is the 3 rd method to minimize employee exposure. • Shielding means containing the source of radiation within a barrier that will block the radiation. • This material is usually lead. • Shielding radiation sources is not always possible, therefore, the “Time and Distance Principles” are the best protection.

Natural sources of radiation constitute the major source of radiation exposure to the populations of most, if not all, countries, with the next largest source being applications of medical technology. for informed decision-making on radiation-related issues. 9. It was established that the thematic priorities for the period would be medical exposures of patients, radiation levels and effects of energy production, exposure to natural sources of radiation and improved understanding of the effects from low-dose-rate radiation exposure. File Size: KB. For average exposure to natural background radiation, the chance is of the order of 1 in 10, per year. For average exposures in the population from many current practices, it is very much lower than it is for background radiation. IV. What are the protection principles upon which radiation protection is founded?

SyntaxTextGen not activatedpdf ANNEX B: EXPOSURES FROM NATURAL RADIATION SOURCES INTRODUCTION 1. The exposure of human pdf to ionizing radiation from natural sources is a continuing and inescapable feature of life on earth. For most individuals, this exposure exceeds that from all man-made sources combined.

There are two main contributorstonaturalradiation exposures File Size: KB.Natural Radiation Naturally occurring radiation – or so-called “background radiation” – on download pdf accounts for approximately 50% of our exposure. It’s found in the food we eat, the water we drink and the construction materials used in our buildings, while terrestrial radiation also comes from soils enriched in naturally occurring.The ICRP recognises three categories of exposed individuals: workers, patients and members of the public.

These ebook of exposure are known as occupational, public and medical exposure. Occupational exposure is generally interpreted as radiation exposure of individuals as a result of their work. However, as radiation is ubiquitous, only.
