Radiological Training for Tritium Facilities
Airborne Tritium Monitoring
Airborne tritium monitoring is used
Prompt detection of airborne
contamination for worker
Determination of the status of
Identification of any leaks in
primary or secondary
containments or confinements.
Despite contamination control
measures, tritium is easily spread.
All workplaces shall be surveyed for
contamination levels on a regularly
scheduled basis. The frequency of
such surveys will depend on the
potential for dispersement of the
tritium-contaminated material in the
area and the quantity of tritium in the
area. During routine surveys, all
work enclosures, work surfaces,
floors, equipment, etc., within the
workplace should be surveyed.
