ISO 21482:2007 Ionizing-radiation warning — Supplementary symbol
This article will provide supplementary information to ISO 21482:2007, which is the international standard for ionizing radiation warning symbols. ISO 21482:2007 establishes five different types of ionizing radiation warning symbols (types A-E), and this article provides supplementary information for the symbol for radioactive contamination.
What is ISO 21482:2007?
ISO 21482:2007 is an international standard that defines a supplementary symbol for radiation protection.
Radiation protection is an important aspect of safety in the workplace. ISO 21482:2007 provides a supplementary symbol for radiation protection, which can be used to identify radiation-sensitive products and materials.
This symbol helps to ensure that these products and materials are handled and stored safely. It can also help to protect workers who are exposed to radiation from potential health risks.
ISO 21482:2007 is an internationally accepted standard that has been developed over many years.
What are the requirements of ISO 21482:2007?
ISO 21482:2007 sets out the requirements for supplementary symbols to be used on products that may be exposed to ionizing radiation.
Products that may be exposed to ionizing radiation must include a supplementary symbol that indicates the level of exposure. The supplementary symbol is shown below the health warning symbol and next to the product name.
The levels of exposure indicated by the supplementary symbol are based on the maximum permissible exposure limit (MPE) for ionizing radiation set out in ISO 10993:2006.
The supplementary symbol is only shown on products that may be exposed to ionizing radiation and it is not necessary for all products that may be exposed to ionizing radiation to include a health warning symbol.
What are the benefits of ISO 21482:2007?
ISO 21482:2007 is a standard that provides guidance on radiation protection for workers in the medical, scientific, and industrial sectors.
ISO 21482:2007 defines the dose limits for radiation exposure to workers and sets out procedures for calculating permissible doses of radiation.
The benefits of ISO 21482:2007 include improved safety and health outcomes for workers, as well as reduced costs associated with radiation protection.
ISO 21482:2007 is currently being updated to ISO 25370:2013. This update will improve the accuracy of the guidance contained in ISO 21482:2007, and it will also include new dose limits for radiation exposure to workers.
Who needs ISO 21482:2007?
ISO 21482:2007 is a standard used to describe the health effects of ionizing radiation. It is not relevant to the majority of businesses, and most businesses do not need to comply with it.
ISO 21482:2007 is only relevant to companies that produce, use, or sell products that contain ionizing radiation. This includes companies that manufacture medical equipment, nuclear energy plants, or nuclear weapons.
ISO 21482:2007 does not apply to most businesses. Only a small percentage of businesses in the world are actually affected by it.
