Safety is all about being protected against physical, occupational, or other types or consequences of failure, damage, accidents or any other event which is undesirable. This can take the form of being protected from the event or from exposure to something that causes health or economical losses. It is important to realize that safety is relative. Eliminating all risks would be extremely difficult and very expensive. A safe situation is one where risks of injury or hazard are low and manageable.

In any facility handling ionizing radiation it should be ensured that regulatory limit for radiation exposure is complied with and release of radioactive material to the environment is prevented.
