RESEARCH OF RADIATION HYGIENE AND RADIATION MEDICINE IN INSTITUTE FOR OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH OF AMS OF UKRAINE

SI «Institute for Occupational Health» of AMS of Ukraine», Kiev

Full article (PDF), RUS

The article highlights the history of development of studies on radiation hygiene and radiation medicine at work in the Institute for Occupational Health of AMS of Ukraine over 50 years. A close relationship of studies and their implementation into practice, introduction of results of studies in gas producing and metallurgic industries and in atomic power engineering is underlined. The great work was made in mitigation of medical consequences of the Chernobyl accident, in development of instructions for forestry workers, drivers of motor transport and road workers on territories contaminated by radioactive sub-stances in the first days after the accident. The joint Ukraine — USA epidemiological study of radiation cataract in clean-up workers was conducted, which was the basis for development of Orders of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine on prevention of cataracts in workers of atomic electric plants.

Key words: history, radiation hygiene, radiation medicine at work, industry, Chernobyl accident, mitigation of consequences
