Since 1992, the Information System on Occupational Exposure (ISOE) has provided a
forum for radiological protection professionals from nuclear power utilities and national
regulatory authorities worldwide to discuss, promote and co-ordinate international
co-operative undertakings for the radiological protection of workers at nuclear power
plants. The ISOE objective is to improve occupational exposure management at nuclear
power plants by exchanging relevant information, data and experience on methods to
optimise occupational radiological protection.
This report on work management provides practical guidance on the application of work
management principles as a contribution to the optimisation of occupational radiological
protection. It recognises that while work management is no longer a new concept, continued
efforts are needed to ensure that good performance, outcomes and trends are maintained
in the face of current and future challenges. The focus of this report is therefore
on presenting the key aspects of work management that should be considered by management
and workers to save time, doses and money, supported by updated practical examples
from within the ISOE community.
