Even if nuclear plants are inoperative in Italy, nevertheless the use of ionizing radiations is very diffused, particularly in medical and industrial fields. As a consequence every year notifications of possible professional illnesses appearing in radiation workers are lodged and the fact obviously lead the S.Pre.S.A.L. (Prevention and Safety of Workplace Service) to inspect. Therefore the object of the inspection, the opportunity of collaboration for the judgment of the event and the critical aspects that sometimes arise in the interpretative formalities of the event itself are discussed from the approved physician point of view. Usually this happens because of the absolute peculiarity of the Medical Radiation Protection Surveillance and of the fact that often the UPG is not an approved physician: namely this fact can create discordances in the interpretation of the damage entity, of the causation and of possible penal responsibilities. Besides, very often, during the inspection collaborations, representing a sure growth stimulus for the competences of all the concerned subjects, occur. © PI-ME, Pavia 2010.
