Lethal toxicological parameters for a number of harmful emissions (hydrogen fluoride, nitrogen dioxide, etc.) were estimated in the article. It was shown that emissions of interest made the threshold of acute toxic effect for people of Ust-Kamenogorsk. Equivalent dose of radiation in a year was calculated for the record of the amount of absorbed energy and biological effect of radiation. Effective doses of radiation were given for different organs and tissues of a human body. It was established that the total effective dose of the radiation of -particles for human 6,2 mZv which is about 6 times more than standard (1 mZv).
