With radiating waves, a skull and crossbones and a running person, a new ionizing radiation warning symbol is being introduced to supplement the traditional international symbol for radiation, the three cornered trefoil.
The new symbol is being launched today by the IAEA and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) to help reduce needless deaths and serious injuries from accidental exposure to large radioactive sources. It will serve as a supplementary warning to the trefoil, which has no intuitive meaning and little recognition beyond those educated in its significance. (IAEA)
Wel even wennen, de gele driehoek boezemde volgens mij toch ook wel veel angst in. Maar ze hebben gelijk: misschien was ie niet voor iedereen even duidelijk.
