Module 3: Radiation Limits and Administrative Control Limits - hdbk-1130-98_ch10082


DOE-HDBK-1130-98
Module 2 Biological Effects
Instructor's Notes
The estimates in Table 2-2 indicate that the health risks
from occupational radiation doses are smaller than the
risks associated with normal day-to-day activities that
we have grown to accept.
b.
Acceptance of a risk:
1)
is a personal matter.
2)
requires a good deal of informed judgment.
c.
The risks associated with occupational radiation doses
are generally considered acceptable as compared to
other occupational risks by most scientific groups who
have studied them. There are some scientific groups
who claim that the risk is too high. DOE continues to
fund and review worker health studies to address these
concerns.
III.
SUMMARY
In summary, the estimated risk associated with occupation
radiation dose is similar to other routine occupational risks and
much less than some risks widely accepted in society. The risk of
work in a radiation environment is considered within the normal
occupational risk tolerance by national and international scientific
groups. However, acceptance of risk is an individual matter and is
best made with accurate information. A radiological worker should
understand the risk of working in a nuclear environment in relation
to the risks of daily life and the risks presented by work in other
professions. The intent of this module is to give you the facts about
radiation exposure risks and provide you with an opportunity to ask
questions about radiation risk. It is hoped that understanding
radiation risk and risk in general will help you to develop an
informed and healthy respect for radiation, and that your
understanding will eliminate excessive fear of or indifference to
radiation.
