MEASUREMENT OF RADIATION EXPOSURE RECEIVED BY FLIGHT ATTENDANTS FROM SHIPMENTS OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL

A study was conducted in late 1974 to measure physically the radiation dose received by selected flight attendants from shipments of radioactive material transported on board commercial airline flights in the United States. This study was sponsored jointly by the two flight attendants' unions and by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Analyses of the data indicates that the radiation dose received by most flight attendants from these shipments is small and is well below the limit recommended for individuals of the general public by international and national organizations on radiation protection.
