Radiological Safety Training for Uranium Facilities
Module 104 Internal Dose Control
as stay times, worker safety, comfort, and efficiency, are also discussed in Article
316.
The internal exposure resulting from uranium entering the body can be properly
controlled by appropriate facility and equipment design, contamination control
procedures, and protective clothing. A bioassay monitoring program to determine
the amount of uranium taken into the body is also an integral part of internal
exposure control.
1.
Contamination Control Philosophy
The control of contamination in the work place is a significant part of the
overall radiological protection program at uranium facilities. Proper
contamination control will:
limit internal exposure by minimizing the ingestion, inhalation, absorption,
and injection of uranium;
limit external dose from uranium and its radioactive decay products; and
prevent the spread of radioactive materials into uncontrolled areas.
2. Contamination Control Methods
Because uranium is relatively less hazardous than some other radioactive
materials, such as plutonium, some people can develop an overly relaxed
attitude to uranium; in effect saying, "It's only uranium." Care must be taken to
avoid this attitude, and to control uranium contamination in compliance with
regulations, policies, and procedures. Uranium contamination can be effectively
controlled by:
