Abstract


Life safety improving the State Enterprise 38 department engineering units"(SE «38 DETU») in the radiation-contaminated areas of the former uranium mining production association «Pridneprovskiy Chemical Plant» (PA «PCP») in accord-ance with the scope of radiation monitoring service activities .Method. In conducting research using the standard methods of radiation hazard studies recommended by the ICRP and NRBU. Results. The total length of the perimeter of the entire southern industrial area, on the territory of which are located just three tailings. «The West», «Central Yar» and «South-East», is 6342 m for the measurement has been proposed to divide the entire perimeter of the southern part of the industrial site at 7 posts 30 and successive areas of fixed location and a certain length. Measurement of RAD and DER gamma-radiation and β-radiation on the territory of the perimeter of each of the tailings was carried on routes bypassing the guards on the trail outfit every 20 m in the southern part of the tailings indus-trial site. Measurement of α-radiation on the perimeter of the territory was carried out at the control points around the perimeter of the tailings «Central Yar», where there are abnormal areas. To summarize the data measurements, which were conducted in the period May 2006 to November 2011, the employees of the department «Life Safety» together with the staff of technical service and mainte-nance of radiation SE «38 DETU» monitor the perimeters of the trail attire was held. Scientific novelty. For the first time, based on studies the regularities of changes in radiation hazard protection on routes tailings, depending on the time of year and weather conditions. Practical meaningfulness. Complex investigations on the territory of the former uranium production PD «PCP», according to the State program of bringing dangerous objects PD «PCP» in an environmentally safe condition and to ensure the protection of the population, of the harmful effects of ionizing radiation, which allowed us to estimate the radiation hazard on the route protection, adjacent to the tailings, «West», «Central Yar».
