Control of Radiation

Radiation is one of the many hazards that may endanger health and life, alongside road transport, fire, chemicals, machinery and electricity.

The public is protected from artificial radiation by the careful design and operation of equipment that contains or emits radiation, so as to keep radiation within confined areas in a confined location, and through the enforcement of the statutory regulations designed to safeguard the public. Through prompt and appropriate action, the risk of radiation is kept very low.

There are several ways to protect individuals from sources of radiation, some of which we commonly encounter at the dentist’s, and which are all used at nuclear power stations:
