This rule establishes standards for protection against radiation hazards. In addition to complying with requirements set forth, every reasonable effort should be made to maintain radiation levels in unrestricted areas and releases of radioactive materials in effluents to unrestricted areas, as far below the limits specified in this rule as practicable.

It also lists instructions for workers, details about inspections by the department and precautionary procedures for handling radioactive material and hazardous waste.
