Conditions and Means of Developing a Radiation Protection Practical Culture within the Population in Post-Accident Situations

GALLAY F., SCHNEIDER T.

At the last IRPA conference in Buenos Aires (2008), the French nuclear safety authority (ASN) presented the approach implemented for the definition of a national doctrine related so the risk management during the post accidental period following a nuclear accident (so called “CODIRPA program”). The subject of the "Radiation Protection Practical Culture" was investigated in this framework, as identified as a key element of long-term rehabilitation of living conditions in territories

Radiation Protection Aspects of Water Chemistry and Source-Term Management with a View of an ISOE Expert Group

ROCHER A., VAILLANT L., RANCHOUX G., OKYAR H.B.

Since 1992, the Information System on Occupational Exposure (ISOE, see www.isoe-network.net), which was launched by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA), has provided a forum for radiation protection professionals from nuclear electricity utilities and national regulatory authorities worldwide to share dose management information and operational experience to improve the optimisation of worker radiological protection at nuclear power plants. Since 1993, the International Atomic Energy

Radiation Protection Culture at School: Feedback Experience and Perspective

SCHNEIDER T., REAUD C., CHARRON S, BERNAUD J.Y.

The radiation protection culture corresponds to the set of knowledge and know-how allowing people to be informed, to behave and to make decision accordingly with regard to exposure situations involving ionizing radiation. In this perspective, the aim of the development of this culture is to provide people the means to understand the risk

The Precautionary Principle and the Ethical Foundation of the System of Radiation Protection System

LOCHARD J.

The precautionary principle is one of the core values structuring the radiation protection system. Finding its roots in the Western tradition in the virtue of prudence developed by Aristotle, the concept of precaution can also be found in the Buddhist philosophy, the teaching of Confucius and in the ancient traditions of the peoples of

Development and Dissemination of ALARA Culture

SCHIEBER C. et al.

The need to further develop and disseminate ALARA culture comes at a moment in time where we see an increase of the awareness of the risk, new exposure situations to be managed as applications of ionising radiations increase by introducing new techniques, and scientific knowledge of the

CORPORE, a Tool for Interpreting whole Body Monitoring Results

CROÜAIL P., CROTEAU C., SKUTERUD L.

In long-term contaminated territories, the interpretation of whole body monitoring results is not straightforward. In these territories, years after an accident, the ingestion of contaminated foodstuffs becomes the preponderant root of exposure...
