organization should also be in a position to assure direct access to the company
president. This is to safeguard the program from the pressures of production that
exist in the operational environment, by keeping it independent of operating
organizations.
A system of guides, policies, and procedures should be established to clearly
identify the interrelationships, responsibilities, and authorities of those involved
with the development, operation, and maintenance of the facility and the health and
safety of the employees. These guides, policies, and procedures should be
documented and should be reviewed at least once every year.
3.3.3
Adequacy of Personnel and Equipment
A sufficient number of qualified and, where required, certified radiological control
personnel should be available to perform necessary tasks for support of plutonium
facility startup and operation (See Section 3.4 for guidance concerning staffing and
staff qualifications). Sufficient equipment, including protective clothing,
respiratory protective equipment, and radiation detection instrumentation should be
available to support RCTs and operating personnel in the performance of work in
controlled areas.
3.3.4
Assignment of ALARA Responsibility and Authority
Limiting radiation exposures to the lowest levels commensurate with the benefit of
the work to be accomplished has long been a part of health physics and radiological
protection programs of DOE and its contractors. 10 CFR 835 (DOE 1993c)
establishes the policy of maintaining ALARA exposures of workers and the public
to radiation from DOE operations. Procedures are required to be prepared (10 CFR
835.104) and implemented and records must be maintained (10 CFR 835.701) to
demonstrate the implementation of ALARA. The DOE standard, Radiological
Control , Ch. 1. (DOE, 2004), provides additional guidance. Munson et al. (1988)
and G 441.1-2, Implementation Guide. Occupational ALARA Program (DOE,
1999b), may be used in developing an ALARA program.
An ALARA committee should be established at the plutonium facility. The
membership should include managers and workers from the line, the technical
support organization, and the radiological control organization. A line manager,
such as Director of Operations, Research, or Maintenance should serve as the
committee chair. The ALARA committee should make recommendations to
management to improve progress toward minimizing radiation exposure and
radiological releases (DOE, 2004).
