Exposure limits for workers and the public are based on both chemical toxicity and radiation dose. As a consequence of the different procedures used in their calculation they are incompatible, and adherence to one limit may result in a serious breach of the other. This paper explores the background to these limits, the problems posed by their application and proposes how best to achieve compliance with both limits.
