A. Self Introduction
The practical factors module consists of various activities/demonstrations that are led by the
instructor, but participation by the entire class is encouraged. These activities are provided
as a practice session for the student before he/she is evaluated.
This module will:
Provide the radiological worker with "hands -on" training.
Apply the basic knowledge and skills obtained from the theory portions of Radiological
Worker Training that are required to enter and exit Radiological Buffer Areas and
Radiation Areas at the site.
Review good radiological work practices.
Review lessons learned (when applicable) from on-site and off-site occurrences.
Upon completion of the "hands on" training, each student shall demonstrate the ability to enter,
work in, and exit a simulated Radiological Buffer Area/Radiation Area following facility-specific
guidelines. The scope of the practical evaluation shall cover the minimum requirements as set out
in references 1, 2, and 3.
C. Objectives Review
Using proper radiological techniques and information provided by Radiological Control personnel
will help ensure a safe working environment for all employees.
