Everyone is exposed to naturally occurring radiation from the sun and elemental occurring sources in our environment. The low levels encountered pose no serious threat to health if sensible precautions are taken to minimise exposure. A number of industries generate and utilise ionising radiation for it’s properties or involve working in environments where exposure to naturally occurring or by product radiation is increased. Companies working in these fields are regulated by the Ionising Radiation Regulations 1999(IRR99) which are monitored and enforced by the Health and Safety Executive in the UK.
Employers have a duty of care to ensure that exposure is kept as low as reasonably practicable and that anyone likely to receive an equivalent annual ionising radiation dose of 6mSv is designated as a classified person and subject to annual medical surveillance. This involves an initial medical assessment with an HSE appointed Doctor together with annual radiation dosimetry and medical follow up by the Doctor. Newcastle Premier Health has an approved Doctor who can meet your needs.
