Strategic trend to the development of nuclear industry in Russia, as the State Corporation "Rosatom" management thinks, is enhancement of intellectual potential of the industry. The strategy highlights complex problems, such as social protection, motivational system, competence and professional skill improvement, related to optimization of personnel management. With account of features of the nuclear industry one can understand, that the main problem of personnel management is the problem of radiological safety. Basic characteristics of the personnel necessary for identification of workers under high individual risk were determined. It appeared that in 2010 among 13062 men and 3880 women under individual dosimetric monitoring 218 men (1.67%) and 6 women (0.15%) only were included in the group of high risk. The average attributable risk (fraction of probability of radiation-associated cancer development) in this group was found to be 11.51 % for men and 15.33% for women. For other 98.7% of the personnel under individual dosimetry monitoring the attributable risk was within limits of the acceptable risk.
