CORRELATION OF URANIUM ALPHA SURFACE CONTAMINATION, AIR-BORNE CONCENTRATIONS, AND URINARY EXCRETION RATES

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

ABS>A statistical evaluation is presented of field data including measurements of alpha activity on work surfaces, in the environmental air; and the results of urinalyses obtained from employees assigned to a UF/sub 6/ manufacturing facility. Two years are studied wherein personnel were subject to relatively low concentrations of both soluble and insoluble normal uranium compounds. Approximately 700 urine specimens were collected and 500 spot-air samples, 4000 shift-length air samples, and 24 surface surveys were made. Statistical correlations of these data are presented, and a method is proposed for estimating the exposure potential of employee groups working in environments having varying ... continued below
