Abstract:Like all activities in our civilised world the transport of radioactive waste on public routes or routes to which the public has access (e.g. rail/road) entails some elements of risk — nuclear and nonnuclear — for man and his environment. The risks involved in waste transport comprise the radiation exposure of the population and transport personnel from normal, accident-free transport, as well as from possible transport or handling accidents with the potential of causing radiation exposure of people and contamination in the surrounding area.
