Sažetak
Checking passengers and their hand baggagefor explosives and illegal or dangerous items and protecting transit system from acts ot terror presents unique security challenges. The number of new x-ray inspection systems installed on the airports raised the question about the radiation protection of security workwrs and passengers. Radiation exposure from baggage control x-ray units is to be recognized as a private/or group hazard of each person alone. We have utilized an active electronic dosemeter (AED) to be uesd for real time measurements of security workers "possible" occupational dose. We measured the area dose around the baggage control x-ray unit in order to establish the control areas of concern if any. Measurement were performed for a period of more than one year taking into account the passenger number, the number of items scanned and the x-ray radiation quality. The result is that the working area near the x-ray baggage control unit used for hand baggage security scanning on airports is not to be regarded as radiation protection control area nor area of concern if the workers are obeying teh security procedure rules. If properly installed, used and maintained x-ray control units used for security purposes is not repersent any radiation exposure risk to the passengers.
