  1. The monetary value of the Person-Sievert : A practical approach in case of occupational exposures.

    Article - En anglais

    This paper gives some practical advice on the determination of the value of the person-Sievert, this figure being of primary importance when cost-benefit analysis is used to optimize (ALARA-principle) routine occupational exposures of professionals to external radiation.

    After a brief introduction on the use of cost-benefit analysis in a radioprotection context, more attention will be paid to the theoretical guidelines that exist on the monetary value of the person-Sievert.

    By combining these insights with the practical problems that occur in daily task preparations and evaluations, a more workable proposal for the determination of the value of the person-Sievert will be presented.
