Strategies and Methods for Optimisation of Internal Exposures of Workers from Industrial Natural Sources (SMOPIE), Final report

Project ID: FIGM-CT-2001-00176
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C

Abstract

Work activities with materials containing natural radionuclides (NORM) can involve significant exposure of workers, due to internal contamination by inhalation. However, there can be considerable differences in work place conditions, radionuclides involved and the physical and chemical matrices in which the radionuclides are incorporated. The project covered occupational internal exposures in various NORM industries. The study aimed to recommend monitoring strategies and methods to optimise radiation protection.
