  • Radiation exposure, no matter how small, carries some risk.

  • These risk are comparable to or smaller than risks we encounter in activities or occupations we consider safe.

  • Unlike many of those risks, we can control personal radiation exposure and minimize risk.

  • We can control our exposure by:

    • Planning work so that time, distance, and shielding are utilized effectively.
    • Ensuring people using radioactive materials are properly trained, have experience, and are supervised.
    • Being clear headed and alert when we work with radioactive materials.
