Changes in radiation safety estimates are leading to far-reaching proposals for the control and management of occupationally exposed workers. In the light of new recommendations expected to be announced this year by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP), this book presents discussions with high-level experts from ICRP, regulatory authorities and nuclear operators.;Focusing on the practical topic of managing occupational exposure, the book examines the implications of recent developments in standards and their application for management. These involve the monitoring of external and internal radiation and the management of over-exposures, together with practical matters including the categorization of working conditions. Of particular interest to both workers and management are the legal implications of exposures and the introduction of compensation schemes.
