Radiological Control: Radiological Standards
This online engineering PDH course, organized into three parts, presents information about the U.S. Department of Energy’s radiological standards.
Part 1 – Administrative Control Levels and Dose Limits. To accomplish DOE's objective of maintaining individual doses well below regulatory limits, challenging numerical administrative control levels should be established below the regulatory limits to administratively control and help minimize individual and collective radiation dose. These control levels should be multi-tiered with increasing levels of authority required to approve higher administrative control levels.
Part 2 – Contamination Control and Control Levels. Control of radioactive contamination is achieved by using engineered controls and worker performance to contain contamination at the source, reducing existing areas of contamination, and promptly decontaminating areas that become contaminated.
Part 3 – Posting. Radiological postings are intended to alert individuals to the presence of radiation and radioactive materials and to aid them in controlling exposures and preventing the spread of contamination. The types of postings required vary based on the application.
This 2 PDH online course is applicable to industrial engineers, design and construction personnel, and other technical professionals who are interested in gaining a better understanding of radiological standards.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding administrative control levels and dose limits
- Understanding contamination control and control levels
- Understanding posting provisions and standards
