Radiological & Environmental Surveillance
‘Health Physics Unit and Environmental Survey Laboratory of Bhabha Atomic Research Center’ carries out in-plant and environmental monitoring of all the UCIL units. The laboratory also evaluates and ensures overall safety in accordance with the standards prescribed by the national and international regulatory bodies like Atomic Energy Regulatory Board(AERB) and the International Commission on Radiological Protection(ICRP). Monitoring of radioactivity and radiation level in different matrices in the mine, mill and surroundings is carried out in routine basis and analysed.
