DOE-STD-1098-99
Radiological Control
Excellence in Radiological Control
June 2004
1.
The senior staff of the radiological control organization should include health physicists and other professionals
with four-year degrees in science or engineering. A continuing training program should be established. DOE
encourages pursuit of certification by the American Board of Health Physics for senior and professional staff
members. Training and education provisions for these individuals are established in Article 654.
2.
Radiological support personnel provide health physics and radiological engineering, dosimetry, bioassay,
independent oversight, instrumentation, and calibration functions. Training and education provisions for these
individuals are established in Article 654.
3.
Appropriate standards for the education and training of radiological control organization senior staff and support
personnel are provided in DOE-STD-1107-97, Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities for Key Radiation Protection
Positions at DOE Facilities.
144 Relationship Between Radiological Control Technicians and Workers
Radiological control technicians (RCTs) and their supervisors perform the functions of assisting and guiding workers in
the radiological aspects of the job.
1.
Radiological workers should be sufficiently trained to recognize questionable or deteriorating radiological
conditions and seek advice from radiological control technicians and their supervisors.
2.
RCTs and their supervisors have the responsibility and authority to stop work or mitigate the effect of an activity in
accordance with Article 345.
3.
The actions or presence of radiological control personnel does not absolve the workers of their responsibility for
properly conducting radiological control aspects of the job.
145 Marginal Radiological Control Performance
1.
When radiological control performance is less than adequate, consideration should be given to strengthening line
management and the radiological control organization to provide adequate radiological control.
2.
If the work force does not have the required level of sensitivity for radiological work practices, additional
management attention is needed to assure the proper outcome. Line management should be held accountable for
implementation of the radiological control program. Corrective actions that should be considered include:
a.
More direct line supervision in the work space
b.
Curtailment of work schedules
c.
Deferral of work
d.
Addition of extra radiological control personnel
e.
Conduct of additional training.
3.
When the workers and supervisors achieve the proper level of radiological control performance, the ongoing need
for the corrective actions instituted in accordance with Article 145.2 should be reevaluated.
