ALARA Self-Evaluation Guide

SCHIEBER C., ANDRESZ S.

ALARA Self-Evaluation Guide

Summary

The optimization principle is a comprehensive and iterative approach for using protection and safety measures to make radiation exposure, and the probability and magnitude of potential exposure, As Low As Reasonably Achievable or ALARA. The application of this principle for occupational radiation protection in nuclear power plants implies the elaboration of dedicated ALARA programmes. The evaluation of the efficiency of such programmes cannot be done using only dosimetric results, but should consider also other factors.

La démarche d’optimisation de la radioprotection pour les expositions professionnelles

SCHIEBER C.

La démarche d’optimisation de la radioprotection pour les expositions professionnelles

Résumé

Cette présentation décrit les supports nécessaires pour une mise en œuvre structurée de la démarche d’optimisation. Elle souligne l’importance de l’organisation (identification des acteurs, de leurs rôle et responsabilité vis-à-vis de la radioprotection, mise en place de structures décisionnelles,...), des facteurs humains (obtenir un engagement de tous les acteurs an s’appuyant notamment sur des actions de formation, de sensibilisation et sur le développement d’une culture de radioprotection), des procédures (selon un processus cyclique : préparation, mise en œuvre, suivi et REX des interventions) et des outils (logiciels, plans d’action…). Des éléments relatifs aux spécificités des Installations Nucléaires de Base et des activités du Nucléaire de Proximité sont également fournis.

Radiation Protection Culture in the French Nuclear Industry

Thierry SCHNEIDER, Caroline SCHIEBER, Ludovic VAILLANT

SRP Annual Conference, Llandudno, 26-28 April 2016.

Abstract

Radiation Protection culture is a topic of specific interest for the French Society for Radiological Protection (SFRP). The preparation of the IRPA guiding principles for establishing a radiation protection culture, published in 2014 and endorsed by SFRP in 2015, was initially suggested and supported by SFRP, considering the importance of promoting radiation protection culture within organisations in order to ensure a good and well understood implementation of the radiological protection system [1].

The aim of this presentation is to outline some of the key components of the radiation protection culture and its role for the implementation of the ALARA principle for occupational exposure in the nuclear industry. Some elements regarding the development of RP culture within the French utility EDF and the main challenges for the future are also discussed.

Radioprotection des travailleurs lors du démantèlement des installations nucléaires

VAILLANT L.

KRS Workshop, Bern, Suisse, 8 April 2016

Résumé

Le nombre de centrales nucléaires mises à l’arrêt définitif est croissant en Europe et aux Etats-Unis. Le démantèlement de ces installations présente des risques particuliers par rapport à la phase d’exploitation qu’il convient d’anticiper et de gérer afin d’assurer un niveau optimal de protection des intervenants.
