Occupational dose distributions from five working groups in Ghana have been studied and analysed.
The dose distribution was found to follow a log-normal distribution as postulated by UNSCEAR but with a mean dose equivalent value of 0.77 mSv per year, as compared to the UNSCEAR reference mean value of 5 mSv per year for all professions.
Causes and remedial actions taken to correct poor work practices that led to exposure situations above the subsidiary investigation level of I mSv per month are highlighted and discussed.
