The purpose of the medical examination is to protect workers. It is intended to prevent anyone who is particularly sensitive to the harmful effects of radiation from being employed or continuing to be engaged in work involving ionising radiation. Consideration is also given to whether certain personal protective equipment may cause particular difficulties. If you have any questions contact the radiation protection personnel or security officer. See also www.ssm.se

When you are emailed a reminder concerning periodic control (from noreply@studsvik.se) SNAB’s security officer sends a prefilled form (on paper) to the Radiation Protection function, which checks and documents your current radiation dose. The form is then sent to you, so that you can fill in supplementary information and sign it. After signing the form, send it to the security officer who will check that it can be forwarded to SNAB’s doctor at Previa. Once the doctor has assessed your fitness for duty, the form is signed and then posted to the security officer. Your new validity date is then updated.
