Event Details

The third international conference on Occupational Radiation Protection: Strengthening Radiation Protection of Workers­­–Twenty Year of Progress and the Way Forward will be held at the International Conference Centre Geneva, Switzerland, from 5-9 September 2022. The conference will be organized by the IAEA, hosted by the Government of Switzerland and co-sponsored by the ILO and in cooperation with other international organizations.

The increasing use of medical procedures utilizing ionizing radiation and better access to this health technology resulted in rapid increase in the number of occupationally exposed workers in medicine over the years. Substantial occupational exposure may occur in certain medical procedures. It is a continuing challenge, in particular for exposure control and training of healthcare professionals in radiation protection issues.

There is an increasing awareness of the need to protect workers in industries involving Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM), and to apply a graded approach by regulators and operators’ resources for the management of worker protection. Experience exchange is needed to establish regulatory requirements for radiation protection in industrial processes involving NORM. Regulation and management of radon exposure in workplaces is also an important topic.
