How to comply with radiation exposure rules

Individuals in New Jersey and throughout the country are exposed to radiation when they use a microwave or talk on a cellphone. However, this is different than the short-wave radiation that doctors and others are exposed to each day while on the job. Over time, individuals could become vulnerable to cancer or other health issues either while on the job or many years after they have stopped working.

There is some debate as to how much exposure a person can experience before it becomes hazardous to his or her health. The practice of dosimetry aims to monitor how much ionized radiation is absorbed into a person's tissue over a given period of time. Data is collected through a badge worn by a technician or anyone else who could be exposed to potentially dangerous levels of harmful particles. At the end of the daily, weekly or monthly read period, the data is sent to be analyzed to ensure that companies are complying with existing safety regulations.

The information can be used as part of a company's efforts to improve its existing safety plan. It can also be used as a baseline when starting a safety plan. Furthermore, workers who can monitor their radiation exposure levels may be able to take proactive steps to keep themselves safe.

Workers who get sick because of exposure to radiation or other harmful chemicals while on the job could receive workers' compensation benefits. This could make it easier to pay medical bills or pay other expenses while out of work. An attorney may be able to help a worker file a claim or handle any disputes that may arise between that individual and a workers' compensation insurance company. If necessary, legal professionals might be able to represent their clients in court.
