Abstract

Policy of radiation use procedures carried out by medical personnel or radiation workers has a potential risk, namely exposure to radiation when carrying out their work. The increase in medical measures in the use of radiation will of course have an impact or implications for radiation workers. The impact of the policy on increasing radiation use cannot be viewed only in terms of the workload problem for radiation workers but also related to the impact of the challenge of ensuring an appropriate radiation worker protection policy. This review literature study aims to determine how the radiation worker protection policies include radiation worker protection regulations and radiation worker protection forms. The method used is literature review, namely by examining data sources in the form of articles in research journal databases both from within and outside the country through searching for e-journals, government regulations, and reliable sources of internet articles. The results showed that there was an enlargement of the thyroid in radiation workers in the radiology unit, the patient died due to an overdose in radiation therapy, many of the equipment did not meet safety requirements. In carrying out their work, health workers in the radiation sector are protected as regulated in policy, namely a set of regulations in the form of laws, government regulations, ministerial decrees and regulations as well as Bapeten decrees and regulations.
