    Radiation exposure

    We all come into contact with radiation when we travel by air, sit in the sun, use mobile phones and watch TV. However, these are very small doses of radiation and not generally harmful. People who live near a nuclear power plant are in more danger of radiation overdoses, as are hospital workers, people who work in the nuclear industry and those who work in research institutions.

    Radiation exposure damages our DNA and body cells, causing cancers, radiation poisoning and radiation sickness.

    Symptoms vary and range from nausea, vomiting, and hair loss to haemorrhages and anaemia, with a plethora of other symptoms such as skin darkening. A blood test will determine whether or not a patient has radiation poisoning.

    Employer responsibility

    The regulations pertaining to the management of radiation are enforced by the Health and Safety Executive and the details for such management are laid down in the Ionizing Radiation Regulations Act 1999. Employers have a responsibility to ensure that workers who could be exposed to radiation are issued with protective clothing and to ensure that levels of radiation are kept as low as possible and do not exceed the levels which are deemed acceptable in the Act.
