Radiation Control (RadCon) Department

INFORMATION

Return to Onsite Work and RadCon Training - updated September 28, 2020

Many JLab staff, subcontractors and users will be coming due for requalification in Radworker-I training in the next few months.  The requirements for certification as a radiological worker include a proctored, closed-book test.

The RadCon department (RCD) has been working with line management in the divisions to schedule requalification tests for essential workers in order to maintain the capability of the Lab in a safe shutdown condition. As plans are solidified for the staged return of additional workers, we would like to keep everyone informed of our plans.

At the present time, please email radcon_train@jlab.org to schedule your proctored Radworker-I test.  If a backlog occurs, we may hold a series of "public" testing sessions that radworkers can attend in groups to take the test.  We will schedule locations and publish the dates if this becomes necessary.

Thanks,

RCD

 

MISSION STATEMENT:

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.
