How can liability be limited in the workplace?
Cody Miles | July 4, 2018
Responsibility for damage caused by exposure to radiation in the work place is most often assigned to the employer. Employers utilizing sources of radiation in their business are required by the NRC to have a license permitting safe use of their source. Exposure to hazardous radiation is governed by laws that are designed to protect employees through safe handling and use of radioactive sources. Radiation damage experienced by employees is often an indication of failing to abide by these laws which leaves the employer exposed to legal liability for the damage caused. Developing and implementing a radiation safety program which includes documented occupational dose monitoring will assist employers in limiting their exposure to liability in the workplace.
