Abstract : To determine the shielding afforded against beta radiation from uranium by coveralls worn in uranium processing plants. The coveralls tested were similar to those commonly worn at all of our uranium plants. They are composed of olive drab denim, winter weight (9 oz/sq yd.). They are constructed in such a manner as to offer different degrees of shielding for different parts of the garment, since the cloth is hemmed and belted at different points. Therefore, the data for 2 layers of cloth is pertinent.
