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 participant before he/she is evaluated.
This module will:
Provide the Radiological Worker with "hands-on" training.
Apply the knowledge obtained from the theory portions of High Radiation Area training.
Review good radiological work practic es for dose control.
Review lessons learned (as applicable) from on-site and off-site occurrences.
Upon completion of the presentation, each participant shall demonstrate the ability to enter,
work in, and exit a simulated High 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
Prior knowledge of radiological conditions can reduce unnecessary personnel exposure. Using
proper radiological techniques and information provided by Radiological Control personnel will
help ensure a safe working environment for all employees.
Each site shall develop a practical factors evaluation for High Radiation Radiation Areas (as
applicable). The site may choose to incorporate the High Radiation Area practical factor into the
Radiological Worker I practical factors, or develop a separate practical factors lesson for High
