Management of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials - known in the industry as NORM -has become an important part of the regular training required for workers in oil and gas production, refinery and petrochemical manufacturing, and in certain types of mining. Proper handling of NORM-contaminated wastes and use of appropriate radiation detection and protective equipment are now understood to be important components of good worker safety programs.
Until now, no practical, easy-to-read, book was available to supplement worker training courses on NORM management. Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials: Principles and Practices fills this void by providing, in a single publication, an ideal reference for industry managers, supervisors and line personnel. The book stresses the proper handling and management of NORM contaminated wastes and provides a firm understanding of the chemical properties of radioactive agents, their toxicological effects, and the appropriate containerization and disposal methods for these materials.

Review:

Written by an environmental compliance manager, this book presents a practical, easy-to-read book that can supplement or form the core of worker training courses on NORM management. The text fills a void and is an ideal reference for industry managers, supervisors and line personnel who need to be current on managing such materials in oil and gas production, refinery and petrochemical manufacturing, and in certain types of mining. Key features include practical information on NORM surveying and sampling, easy-to-understand basics of radiation science, informative explanation of radiation detectors and their use, and major aspects of personal protection from radiation and contamination. -- From the Publisher
