Abstract

JET has completed its first stage of active operations, processing more than 100g of tritium during the deuterium-tritium experiment, the neutral beam intervention and remote tile exchange shutdown. The radiological safety of tritium handling operations has been of particular interest. A wide range of tritium operations has been carried out in the period 1995-98. This paper describes some of the radiological protection measures for work with tritium, and discusses health physics operational experience of handling tritium in this period.
