The application of the principle that occupational exposures to risk and hence the risk of radiation exposure are required to be As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP) is a fundamental requirement of UK Health and Safety legislation. This Good Practice Guide (GPG) details the principles and practices that are considered to be good practice in the nuclear industry.
Personal Dosimetry, in one form or another is required to record and manage personal dose associated with work with ionising radiation. This Good Practice Guide (GPG) details the principles and practices that are considered to be nuclear industry good practice.
Changerooms, in one form or another, are associated with many practices involving the use of ionising radiation. As well as providing access to, and egress from, designated areas they also have a very important, and integral, role to play in preventing the spread of contamination. For this reason, it is important to ensure that the design, operation and maintenance of Changerooms reflects, so far as is reasonably practicable, agreed good practice.
The UK Industry Radiological Protection Coordination Group has written this Good Practice Guide for the radiation user community. Membership of this group includes active participants of the UK Ionising Radiations Metrology Forum; thus, it was seen as a document that compliments the existing suite of Good Practice Guides published by the NPL.
