Lead safety clothing and lead lined fabrics for x-ray shielding and radiation shielding protection.
The NCRP has established maximal permissible doses for persons who receive occupational exposure. The NRC has suggested that occupational exposure be as low as reasonably achievable.
Three principles of radiation protection are: Increase distance from the source, Reduce exposure time and wear shielding and protective products. Nuclead provides protective products to comply with NCRP recommendations.
