Upon completion of this training, the student will have a
basic understanding of the characteristics of uranium and
the precautions needed for working in an uranium
facility, which typically would include uranium fuel
facilities or areas contaminated with or storing uranium,
or sites involved in cleanup programs such as UMTRA.
Individuals who have been assigned duties in uranium
facilities. These individuals, depending on their job
responsibilities, typically would include Radiological
Workers. Depending on the facility, portions of the
material may be applicable to General Employees and/or
Radiological Control Technicians.
This course illustrates and reinforces the skills and
knowledge needed to provide personnel with an
understanding of the characteristics of uranium and the
precautions needed for working in a DOE uranium
facility. This course is developed in accordance with
Article 662 of the RCS. The course material may be
useful in developing and providing the facility specific
portion of existing standardized core training, especially
Radiological Worker Training.
This training material is designed to augment the DOE
Radiological Worker core training. This course includes
Radiological Worker training material but is not
intended to replace Radiological Worker training. It is
recommended that students complete Radiological
Worker II training prior to receiving this course, if their
job responsibilities require such training. Otherwise,
Radiological Worker I training is recommended as a
4-8 hours (depending on facility-specific information).
