Modernization of medical equipment with ionizing radioactive sources and introduction of digital technologies as well as computerization of workplaces contribute to the emergence of new non-ionizing factors affecting the health of medical personnel. Analysis of the results of a special assessment of the work environment of medical personnel showed that more than 50% of those work in harmful working environment conditions. According to the results of a special assessment of work environment, 40 workplaces with sources of ionizing radiation with 58 employees were identified in the medical organizations under study. The greatest influence of ionizing radiation was noted among cardio-surgeons and operating nurses of the department of X-ray surgical methods of diagnosis and treatment. On the basis of the performed analysis, recommendations were made to improve the work environment of medical personnel working with sources of ionizing radiation, including air ionization, regulated breaks and uniform distribution of the patients flow during the working day, provision of modern personal protective equipment as well as radiation-measuring control.
