Assessment Of Awareness Of Radiation Hazards Associated With Air Travel Among Air Travel Users In Enugu Metropolis

Aim: To determine the level of awareness of the passengers of aircrafts on the health hazards associated with air travel in the Akanu Ibiam Airport, Enugu where the research was carried out.
The study also sought to determine the relationship between the respondents’ level of education and their awareness of the health hazards associated with increased cosmic radiation dose.
Finally, the researcher sought to determine the relationship between the respondents’ knowledge of the health risks associated with air travel and their rate of flying.

Method: A cross sectional perspective study of passengers in the Akanu Ibiam Airport, Enugu. Participants were adults (18 years and above) comprising of 61 males (67%) and 30 females (33%) with mean age of 31.5+12.22 years. 91 passengers were randomly selected. A 15-item questionnaire was used for data collection. The study lasted for three months.
Result: 91 respondents were studied, results from the study revealed that about 67% of the interviewed passengers didn’t even know what cosmic radiation is, talk more of knowing the health implications of its increased dose- which is obtainable with frequent long distance flights.
Also, it was found that although a vast majority of the respondents have attained or are at the tertiary level of education (about 95%), most of them did not know what cosmic radiation is nor did they know the health implications of its increased dose on humans.
Finally, it was discovered that those of the respondents who knew about cosmic radiation (about 33%) of the respondents got this information especially from the media while some got the information from seminars.
Conclusion: This study reveals the awareness level of the health implications of cosmic radiation among passengers in the Enugu Airport which will aid the relevant agencies responsible for public health by providing a reliable information base with which to further enlighten the masses on the possible health implications of cosmic radiation.
It is therefore advised that the relevant agencies-Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), The Nigerian Aviation Ministry and other agencies employ the media in much same way as the Ministry of Health does in the issue of HIV/AIDS, Malaria to sensitize the general public about the effects of cosmic
