Module 6: Radiological Access Controls and Postings
A. Self Introduction
B. Module Overview
Radiological Work Permits (RWP) used to control access
into areas controlled for radiological purposes will be
addressed. In addition, radiological requirements for
working in these areas will be presented.
The previous modules discussed some important
radiological topics from a theoretical perspective. The
current module will discuss the application of this theory
to control radiological work in a safe but efficient
II. MODULE OUTLINE
Radiological Work Permits (RWPs)
Purpose of RWPs
RWPs may be used to establish radiological controls
for entry into areas controlled for radiological
purposes. They serve to:

Types of RWPs
The type of RWP used will depend on the
