Compensation schemes for occupational radiation induced health afflictions vary considerably from nation to nation throughout the world. This paper reviews the readily available information on compensation schemes for various countries and focuses on whether such schemes for occupational radiation exposure induced health effects are covered by the specific circumstances of the work or under a general workers compensation regime. Conclusions lead to issues of what parameters make for an efficient, fair, timely and circumstance dependent occupational radiation compensation scheme.
