Nuclear decommissioning work must be carried out to the highest possible standards to protect workers, the general public and the environment. This book describes the techniques used for dismantling redundant nuclear facilities, the safe storage of radioactive wastes and the restoration of nuclear licensed sites. * Describes the techniques used for dismantling nuclear facilities, safe storage of radioactive wastes, and the restoration of nuclear licensed facilities. * Provides the reader with decommissioning experience accumulated over 15 years by UKAEA. * Contains valuable information to personnel new to decommissioning and waste management.2-6-5. Optimisation of Protection After the application of Protective Dose Limits, there is an additional requirement that residual doses should be kept a€œas low as reasonably practicablea€ (ALARP). Essentially, this means that if there is scope for anbsp;...
