NEW BOOKING TOOL FOR RADIATION TESTS/PRACTICALS
The Radiation Control Department has instituted a new booking system for use with Radiation Worker I/II tests and practicals. Please select your JLAB TYPE to see detailed information on scheduling your test.
RAM REQUEST TAG GETS UPDATED
As we head into the scheduled fall run, the RadCon Department has taken the opportunity to modify the survey request process to hopefully make it less susceptible to errors. We will roll-out the new request tags on July 5, 2021. Please contact RadCon at (757) 876-1743 if you have any questions.
It was believed that the current survey request tags reduced the potential for confusion on the disposition of an item(s) that were located in the beam enclosure. Unfortunately, we had an incident where the wrong portion of the tag was removed following a survey, creating a “near miss” condition.
The latest revision to the survey request tag goes back to the basics. Upon filling out a request tag, after the survey has been performed, you will see one of two tags or no tag at all.
Please provide requested information and answer applicable sections of tag
|If activated||If “Free released”|
|A radioactive materials tag will be filled out by RadCon and attached to the item. As always, contact RadCon prior to relocating radioactive materials.||An "OK" tag will be filled out by RadCon and attached to the item or the item will be removed from the Radioactive Material area by RadCon. Do not remove materials from a beam enclosure that do not have an OK tag unless directed by RadCon.|
We are dedicated to developing and administering effective policies and procedures that maintain doses as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) and prevent over exposures while supporting the Lab’s mission of conducting basic research of the atom's nucleus using the unique CEBAF particle accelerator.
We service all dosimetry requests for staff, contractors, and visitors.
We service all requests for surveys of radiological areas (experimental halls), perform release surveys, perform contamination checks, release radioactive material and assist with work under radiation work permits.
We service all requests regarding radiation detection equipment.
We service all requests for shielding requirements and radiation budgets here at JLAB.
We service all Radiation Worker I training, RWI/II Practicals, Radiation Worker II training, ARMS training and RCT qualifications.
Users can find out information here on radiation training and dosimetry.
