Все сотрудники станции, а особенно четвертого блока, обязаны были проходить специальную проверку на радиацию при выходе с работы. Если сотрудник был недостаточно «чистым», загорался красный сигнал — и турникет не срабатывал. Тогда необходимо было возвращаться и еще раз мыться в душе, применяя «Радез» (источник)

Yulia passing a radiation-metering checkpoint at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

It’s a ridiculous door in term of blocking you — the triangle of metalic tube you can see mid-height of the machine — but its symbolic power — for me at least— is huge. You spend your day on the site of the worst nuclear disaster in history, and you know that radioactive pollution is spread by random spots. So unless you have an active counter (which constantly monitors how many particles you’re exposed to, something workers of Novarka have, but not the ones working for the power plant who only have a passive counter telling how much dose they received during the day), then this moment of checking is sort of the ultimate confirmation if you’re clean or not. If you’re not, the door doesn’t open. So the few seconds before the check ends and the door weakly unlocks can feel very long. (источник)
