ICRP Publication 54: Individual Monitoring for Intakes of Radionuclides by Workers: Design and Interpretation
Annals of the ICRP Volume 19/1-3Edited By
- . ICRP
This book contains the ICRP's recommendations for individual monitoring programmes and the interpretation of results of measurements for intakes of radionuclides by workers. It follows the Commission's general principles of monitoring for radiation protection of workers and should be used in conjunction with those principles. The book gives specific guidance on the design of programmes, the calculation of derived reference levels and the interpretation of results. Since models are required to provide a link between the measured quantity and the appropriate limits or reference values, general guidance on the models used is given. Specific values of derived reference levels for radionuclides chosen for their importance in occupational exposure are provided. One of the major changes of principle in this report is the use of a limit on the effective dose equivalent and a non-stochastic limit on dose equivalent to any organ.
For those responsible for or interested in occupational exposure to radiation.
