Radiation technology in use in the reconstruction of Seke road.

In Zimbabwe, radiation technology is used in road construction using Moisture Density gauges. The gauges determine soil moisture content.

Workers usually receive little or no radiation from nuclear gauges due to safety measures in place. When safely used, nuclear gauges will not expose the public to radiation.

The use of nuclear gauges is regulated by the Authority. www.rpaz.co.zw, rpaz_online

#DidYouKnow

On average, Zimbabweans are exposed to about 1 mSv of radiation per person, from natural sources.

This radiation is considered safe.

This type of radiation comes from radioactivity in rocks and the soil, terrestrial radiation, inhalation of radon gas that seeps from the ground into buildings, cosmic radiation and naturally occurring radioactivity in food.
