In the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI), which was merged with the Japan Nuclear Cycle Development Institute into the Japan Atomic Energy Agency in 2005, individual monitoring and dose record keeping for radiation workers have been conducted since 1957. This report outlines the statistics of the number of radiation workers and individual doses, such as annual collective doses, annual average doses, the maximum doses and dose distributions, over the past 48 years from 1957 to 2005. Individual doses were increased due to the augment of trouble and maintenance of new experimental facilities in 1960's. The collective doses and annual average doses in 1960's exceeded 1,200 man-mSv and 0.4mSv, respectively, in some years. Then, consecutive dose reduction efforts made the collective dose significantly decrease to less than 400 man-mSv ($$sim$$1/3 of the highest) and the average dose to $$sim$$0.04 mSv ($$sim$$1/10 of the highest). The collective doses in recent years keep almost constant even though radiation works increase in some high-contaminated hot laboratories for the decontamination and maintenance of experimental equipments. It was found from the analysis of cumulative distributions that there was a specific work-group exposed to significantly high dose compared with other workers.
