Technologies that make use of radiation continue to spread around the world: millions of people are employed in radiation related occupations and hundreds of millions of people benefit from these applications. The use of intense radiation sources for purposes such as the sterilization of medical products requires special care in the design and operation of equipment to prevent radiation injury to workers or to the public. Experience has shown that such technology is generally safely used, but controls have on occasion been circumvented and serious radiological accidents have ensued.
