  Topics include historical changes to the lens dose limit, the current situation with occupational lens exposures (e.g., in medical workers, nuclear workers, and Fukushima nuclear power plant workers) and measurements, and the current status of biological studies and epidemiological studies on radiation by: 7. Occupational Dose Limits. In the course of their work, some individuals may receive exposure above background levels. The Department of Energy (DOE) carefully monitors these levels at all of its facilities and sets limits for acceptable doses. 2 The DOE annual dose limits for occupational radiation exposure at National Labs are shown in Table 1.

Throughout the world, occupational exposures at nuclear power plants have steadily decreased since the early s. Regulatory pressures, technological advances, improved plant designs and operational procedures, ALARA culture and experience exchange have contributed to this downward trend.

The ALARA Center at Brookhaven National Laboratory publishes a series of bibliographies of selected readings in radiation protection and ALARA in a continuing effort to collect and disseminate information on radiation dose reduction at nuclear power plants.

This volume 8 of the series. The abstracts in this bibliography were selected form proceedings of technical meetings and Author: S.G. Sullivan, T.A. Khan, J.W. Xie. Occupational Dose.

The internal and external dose of ionizing radiation received by workers in the course of employment in such areas as fuel cycle facilities, industrial radiography, nuclear medicine, and nuclear power workers are exposed to varying amounts of radiation, depending on their jobs and the sources with which they work.

and analysis programme, culminating in the world’s largest occupational exposure database for nuclear power plants, and an information network for sharing dose reduction information and experience.

Since its launch, ISOE participants have used this system of databases and. Data gathered at the BNL Workshop on Historical Dose Experience and Dose Reduction (ALARA) at Nuclear Power Plants and from recently published literature were reviewed and analyzed.

Large differences were noted, between countries and between similar plants, for collective dose (man-rem) per plant and per unit of electricity generated (MWe-yr). caused by radioactivity associated with naval nuclear propulsion plants.

The average occupational exposure of each person monitored since for radiation associated with naval nuclear propulsion plants is less than rem per year. The total lifetime average exposure during this year period is about 1 rem per Size: KB.

The largest study of nuclear workers to date (), conducted by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), implies an even higher risk—about 6 additional fatal cancers per year per people exposed to the maximum-allowable occupational radiation dose of 50 mSv per year.4 According to the IARC study, although the average Cited by: 8.

Lipár, in Infrastructure and Methodologies for the Justification of Nuclear Power Programmes, Control of occupational exposure The occupational exposure at the power plant should be so controlled that the dose limits recommended by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) and required by the IAEA Safety.

In the US, Lochbaum says the sharing of international information to improve occupational health and safety in nuclear power plants could perhaps be improved.

"The overwhelming majority of information shared internationally about nuclear safety involves technical issues, proper designs and prudent maintenance," he says.

The primary regulations for radioactive emissions (also called radioactive effluents) from commercial nuclear power plants are in 10 CFR P Appendix I.

These rules are designed to keep normal airborne or liquid releases low enough that any public radiation dose would be a minute fraction of the dose from natural background radiation.
