    Elsewhere in this links section we feature 'The IAEA Information Channel on Nuclear and Radiological Events'. This resource only contains the last 12 months of data. Our link to the 'IAEA-database of nuclear and radiological incidents' hosted by Laka.org contains all the data since 2001, and is updated as soon as IAEA release a new report. We do not particularly endorse the complete website which appears to be based mostly on an anti-nuclear (energy) theme - please make up your own mind! What we can say, and Laka.org should take note of this too, is the significant non-nuclear (e.g. industrial radiography and medical) events with generally much higher exposures than those from the nuclear industry.

    This link takes you to a PowerPoint presentation (this will either load upon clicking the link or will download to your browser download folder) on radiotherapy accidents. It makes quite shocking reading and is a valuable educational resource.

    IAEA Information Channel for a 'live' view of incidents (Nuclear & Radiological) reported under the International Nuclear Event Rating Scale (INES). Typical coverage includes significant events in nuclear power plants, research reactors, nuclear fuel cycle facilities and occurrences involving radiation sources or the transport of radioactive material. [December 2023 - note that this channel only now shows 12 months of data. Look elsewhere in our links section of a way to view all events].

    The IAEA Accident Response Publications are not for the faint hearted. They provide an extremely useful description of the deterministic effects of ionising radiation, including the causes of overexposure, how that exposure was brought under control, the effects on the exposed individuals and their medical treatment. Featured accidents include Cochabamba, Chernobyl, Gilan, Goiânia, Sarov, and Tammiku.

  • Database of Radiological Incidents and Related Events

    • Incidents

    This link takes you to an extensive database which compiles general data on radiological accidents/incidents and other events which have produced radiation casualties. Listed events include acute radiation causalities, chronic radiation injury and accidents releasing large quantities of radioactive materials. The resource is very interesting but we do not warrant its accuracy in anyway.
