The ten occupations with the highest annual exposure values
Source: IFA

Since 2014, approximately 969 workers have taken part in the measurements involving GENESIS-UV. As a result, over 3 billion valid data records have been produced to date, equating to well over 80,000 days of measurement. Almost 100 different occupations/sub-task groups have been studied. The results from the years 2014 to 2019 have been summarized in IFA Report 4/2020 (in German).

Consideration of the ten occupations with the highest radiation exposure reveals that many are found in the construction sector, but some also in the raw materials extraction and agricultural sectors. A common outcome of all analyses is however that the task profiles describing the professions are the decisive factor. The occupations and tasks studied to date can be queried in a database:
