Which radiation protection standards organization publishes radiation protection standards in various reports?
National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP)
Which of its published reports are the effective dose limits found?
International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP)
Determine the cumulative effective dose limit for an occupationally exposed person Cumulative:
10 mSv × age (1000 mrem × age)
What are the annual occupational effective dose limits?
Annual: 50 mSv (5000 mrem)
what does a TLD badge do-
lithium fluoride (LiF) in crystalline form, either as a powder or more often as a small chip. When exposed to x-rays, the TLD absorbs energy and stores it in the form of excited electrons in the crystalline lattice. The intensity of visible light is measured with a photomultiplier tube or photodiode and is proportional to the radiation dose received by the crystal.
what does a OSL badge do--
OSL dosimeters are worn and handled just as film badges and TLDs are, and they are approximately the same size. OSL dosimeters have one advantage over TLDs. They are more sensitive, measuring as low as 10 µGya (1 mR).
