The workstation study is part of an occupational risk assessment approach for the health and safety of workers within the framework of the directive 2013/59/Euratom of 5 December 2013.
The employer has three main duties:
The exposure risk analysis can be complemented by an analysis of other risks at this workstation.
The Radiation Protection Expert are generally responsible for these measures and analyses, which he should record such as in an exposure sheet. He also recommends personal protective equipment and collective protective equipment adapted to the workstation.
The exposure sheet enables the classification of the exposed workers into Category A or B.
The delimitation of restricted zones enables the selection of ambient dosimeters and individual dosimeters required and adapted to access these areas.
The workstation study is part of the ALARA policy of the company, as it allows mapping of the most dosing operations and improvement of operational protocols (implementation of personal protective equipment or collective protective equipment, reduction of exposure time, isolation, etc.)
It must be performed in realistic conditions of the workstation, i.e. in areas more likely to be occupied by workers.
LANDAUER guides you through your workstation studies as follows:
The IPLUS®, MONORING® and VISION® dosimeters are particularly adapted to your workstation studies:
The IPLUS dosimeter is used for workstation studies in photons and betas on the following wearing areas:
A Neutrak detector can be incorporated in the IPLUS to measure additionally neutron doses in Hp(10).
The MONORING dosimeter is used for workstation studies in photons and betas in Hp(0.07) at the fingers. Up to ten dosimeters, one per finger, can be used.
