Module Overview
This module is designed to inform the student of the concept of ALARA (As Low As Reas onably
Achievable). This module discusses radiation hazards. Methods for reducing both external and
internal doses from radiation and radioactive material are also discussed.
C. Objectives Review
D. Introduction
DOE establishes dose limits and administrative control levels for general employees. However,
radiological workers and their management strive to keep radiation dose well below these limits.
Radiological workers should always try to maintain their radiation dose As Low As Reasonably
Achievable (ALARA).
II.
MODULE OUTLINE
A. ALARA Program
ALARA stands for As Low As Reasonably Achievable. ALARA is an approach to radiation safety
that strives to manage and control doses (both individual and collective) to the work force and the
general public to as low as is reasonable taking into account social, technical, economic,
practical, and public policy considerations.
1.
ALARA concept
a.
ALARA stands for As Low As Reasonably Achievable.
b.
Because some risk, however small, exists from any radiation dose, all doses should be
kept ALARA. ALARA includes reducing both internal and external radiation dose.
c.
The ALARA concept is an integral part of all site activities that involve the use of
sources of ionizing radiation.
d.
ALARA is the responsibility of all employees.
