Records that establish the conditions under which individuals were
records generated by the monitoring programs) should be retained to
provide a chronological and historical record. See ANSI/HPS-N13.6
A sufficient number of points should be surveyed in order to adequately
assess the radiological status of the area. Regular predetermined points
may be used, but additional spot monitoring should be done to ensure
that all changes in dose rates are identified, recorded, and reviewed.
All records of surveys should clearly identify, as a minimum:
-- The name, signature, and employee number of the surveyor.
-- survey instrument(s) model number, serial number, and calibration
-- the dose rates.
-- the date and time the survey was performed.
-- locations where radioactive material is located temporarily (or is
being temporarily stored) or where equipment that generates ionizing
radiation is being operated.
Records of the results of radiation surveys should be retained in
accordance with facility policy.
Survey data should be reviewed by supervisory personnel. Significant
findings should be presented to the facility manager in a timely manner.
Health physics personnel should summarize survey data in each building
or area at least once a quarter. Significant changes or trends in area dose
actions assigned. The survey summary should be presented to the facility
Survey results and data summaries should be made available to the
ALARA team chair periodically and should be used:
