A pilot study of the radiation exposure to television repair technicians during the course of their work was performed in 70 Baltimore-area television repair shops from March to October 1970. In the first 25 shops, personnel dosimeters were distributed to the repair technicians, and radiation exposure measurements were made on 58 color television receivers representing 15 different brands. In the remaining shops, no radiation measurements were made on receivers, but dosimeters were distributed to the technicians to enlarge the statistical base for personnel exposure determinations. The survey data indicated that the radiation doses received by the technicians were relatively low. Hence, it was concluded that a national survey does not appear necessary. (Author)
