A dosimeter is designed to monitor exposure and serve as a tool to alert an individual if radiation dose readings exceed unhealthy levels of radiation exposure.
The exposure to radiation would imprint on the film and the badges would be collected and sent for processing to determine the amount of exposure received.
The dosimeter allows individuals to track their personal exposure and it also allows management to monitor the exposure of staff on a daily and cumulative basis.
Dosimeters benefit anyone working with or around radiation.
