DOE-HDBk-1122-99 Module 1.09, Fundamental Academic Training Instructor's Guide Phase I; Module 1.09, Radiation Protection Standards

Functional areas: Radiological Training, Technician Training, Study Guide, Radiation Protection
The task of setting exposure limits is both a vital and yet a very difficult undertaking. It is vital because workers must be protected from the harmful effects of ionizing radiation. It is difficult because of the many factors which enter into the effects which radiation produces. Even though a vast amount of data has been gathered and studied, there are still many areas where much work is needed before firm conclusions can be drawn. Nevertheless, in order to advance in the field of nuclear energy, people must work with radiation. Thus, certain levels must be set which will protect workers from undue exposure.
