Radiation is used in a diverse range of industrial, medical, research and communication applications, but there are risks of exposure to ionising radiationsuch as gamma rays, x-rays, and the higher ultraviolet part of the electromagnetic spectrum. These risks must be effectively controlled.
Who may be at risk?
Every person is susceptible to some exposure to natural background radiation and much of the population also has the occasional x-ray. But exposure to ionising radiation arising from the use of radioactive materials and radiation generators in work activities is controlled to ensure that workers and members of the public are not put at risk.
Work environments affected may include:
- oil and gas production
- non-destructive testing
- medical and dental sectors
- education and research establishments (e.g. universities and colleges)
It is important that the risks of ionising radiation in these environments are managed sensibly to protect workers and the public. Exposure to ionising radiation can cause damage to living tissue, and can result in mutation, radiation sickness, cancer, or death. If you are suffering from illness or injury as a result of radiation exposure, it is vital that you receive compensation for your pain, suffering and loss. Our team will always strive to obtain the maximum financial settlement to help you move on with your life.
How can Calio Claims help?
