New emergency exposure guide

31 May 2019

We have published the Guide for Radiation Protection in Emergency Exposure Situations. 

This Guide provides the framework in Australia for the protection of emergency workers, helpers, the public and the environment in emergency exposure situations as well as providing guidance for the planning, preparedness, response and transition required to effectively respond to an emergency. 

The Guide is published in two parts and describes objectives for protection of human health, drawing on international best practice in planning, preparedness, response and transition in nuclear or radiological emergencies.
