Safe Handling of Radioactive Materials. Recommendations of the National Committee on Radiation Protection. Handbook 92.
National Bureau of Standards (DOC), Washington, DC.
This handbook is designed to help users of radioactive materials to handle the radioactive material without exposing themselves or others to radiation doses in excess of maximum permissible limits. The discussion of radiation levels is in terms of readings from dosimeters and survey instruments. Safety in the handling of radioactive materials in research and practical situations where the quantity of materials handled is not great is stressed. Radioactive waste disposal is also discussed.
