The ALARA concept also applies to minimizing
radioactive waste. This will reduce personnel
exposure associated with the handling, packaging,
storing, and disposing of radioactive waste. This
will also reduce the resultant costs. It is very
important for each radiological worker to minimize
the amount of radioactive waste generated.

a.
Minimize the materials used for radiological work.
1)
Take only the tools and materials you need for the
job into areas controlled for radiological purposes.
This is especially important for contamination areas.
2)
Unpack equipment and tools in a clean area. This
will help to avoid bringing unnecessary material to
the job site. This material can become radioactive
waste if it is contaminated.
3)
Use tools and equipment that are identified for
radiological work when possible. (Add facility-
specific information about where such tools are
stored.)
4)
Use only the materials required to clean the area. An
excessive amount of bags, rags, and solvent adds to
radioactive waste.
5)
Sleeve, or otherwise protect with a covering such as
plastic, clean materials brought into contaminated
areas.
6)
(Insert facility-specific information.)
