The required clothing will be identified on the RWP.
D. Don Protective Clothing and Dosimeter(s)
Once the radiological worker has obtained appropriate items, he/she must properly don the
protective clothing. Workers should inspect protective clothing prior to use for tears, holes, or
split seams that would diminish protection. Any defective items should be replaced with intact
Suggest: Using facility-specific posted instructions, the instructor should don the protective
clothing. If practical have students do the same.
Incorporate lessons learned and occurrences, if applicable. (Demonstrate or discuss
Enter Simulated Area and Demonstrate Contamination Control and ALARA Techniques
Once the worker has donned protective clothing and recorded the appropriate information on the
RWP, he/she should proceed directly to the work area. At a minimum, the following
contamination control and ALARA techniques should be used.
Suggest: The instructor should demonstrate entering, performing tasks, and exiting simulated
area using the techniques listed in the lesson plan. This demonstration should cover sections
E through G of this lesson plan. After instructor has completed demonstration, if practical,
have student do the same.
Incorporate lessons learned occurrences. (Demonstrate or discuss occurrences.)
Take only the necessary tools and equipment into a Radiological Buffer Area or a
Read and comply with all posted instructions.
While in a radiological area, do not touch any uncovered portions of the body.
Perform work safely and efficiently.
Use time, distance, and shielding.
When possible, maximize distance from higher radiation areas.
When possible, stay in areas that have lower contamination levels.
Do not loiter in the area.
Avoid hot spots.
Change outer gloves when instructed by Radiological Control personnel, or periodically while
working with contaminated or highly contaminated equipment.
Use good housekeeping techniques.
