Resumen

TOMASINA, Fernando et al. Surveillance of the exposure to ionizing radiations of the university health staff. Rev Cubana Salud Pública [online]. 2010, vol.36, n.1, pp.119-127. ISSN 0864-3466.

Introduction The surveillance program for the workers exposed to ionizing radiations involves personal dosimetries of exposed workers, and their assessment and comparison with the reference values, which allow prioritizing and taking effective preventive actions. Objectives To present the occupational health surveillance program for university workers exposed to ionizing radiations during the 2003-2006 period. Methods Longitudinal and descriptive study. Dosimetric data were obtained from secondary source, on the basis of the dosimetric surveillance program in the University of the Republic. The exposure was evaluated through film dosimetry. The personal dosimetric value records were analyzed within the surveillance program in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006. Results It was observed that the dosimetric values did not exceed the reference values accepted as annual maximum figures. The annual maximum dose received was 15,72 milisieverts in the diagnosis and specialized treatment areas of the university hospital. Conclusions Surveillance of exposure to radiations allowed directing the specific systematic medical check-ups as well as stretching the taking of radioprotective measures. In this regard, the Department of Occupational Health is carrying out educational tasks and disseminating the surveillance program in order to reinforce preventive measures.
