This Safety Report has been developed as part of the IAEA programme on occupational radiation protection to provide for the
application of its safety standards in implementing a graded approach to the protection of workers against exposures associated
with uranium mining and processing. The publication describes the methods of production associated with the uranium industry
and provides practical information on the radiological risks to workers in the exploration, mining and processing of uranium.
It is a compilation of detailed information on uranium mining and processing stages and techniques, general radiation protection
considerations in the relevant industry, general methodology applicable for control, monitoring and dose assessment, exposure
pathways, and radiation protection programs for the range of commonly used mining and processing techniques.
