A56 Occupational exposure

There are jobs in which workers are routinely exposed to radiation, both because of man-made sources (i.e., medical practice, people employed in nuclear fuel cycle facilities etc.) and because of enhanced levels of natural radiation (i.e., airplane crews flying at a height of 8 km receive a dose of 2.8 mSv per hour). This kind of exposure does not affect other members of the public, but it is interesting to see the dose (Figure A.15) that these workers receive in order to have a better understanding of the issue [UNSCEAR, 2000].
