Radiation exposure: Your employer must know what is exact amount of radiation exposure happening in your case. You have a legal right of access to this data. If you are not a classified worker, individual records may be available. Your employer, line manager or safety representative should be able to provide and interpret this information. There should be a policy at work place regarding making some adjustments.
