Abstract: Exposure to ionizing radiation increases the risk of cancer in humans. Russian nuclear workers receive low and middle level accumulated dose for the entire period of their occupational activities. The methodology of UNSCEAR model and estimates of attributable risk was implemented for generating potential risk group among the "Mayak" plant personnel. There are 5,858 workers covered by individual dosimetry monitoring, who have received radiation doses since 1949. It was stated that 2% of the "Mayak" plant personnel covered by individual dosimetry monitoring should be included in the group of potential risk for radiation-induced cancer. UNSCEAR recommendations for estimating individual radiation risks can be used for generating groups of potential risks among Russian nuclear workers.
