National Standard for Limiting Occupational Exposure to Ionizing Radiation (2002) - Australian Government

Description

You will be required to comply with this standard if you intend to deal with controlled materials, controlled apparatus or controlled facilities where you are occupationally exposed, or potentially exposed, to ionizing radiation.

Controlled apparatus includes an apparatus which produces harmful non-ionizing radiation when energised.

A controlled facility is a nuclear installation or a prescribed radiation facility. A controlled material means any natural or artifical material, which emits ionizing radiation spontaneously.

The objectives of this standard are to limit the risk to health arising from exposure to ionizing radiation in the workplace and to optimize radiation protection by setting common essential requirements for the control of exposure to radiation, including the specification of employers duties and employees duties.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance that may be required.
