h)
If the count rate increases during frisking, pause for 5 to 10 seconds over the
area to provide adequate time for instrument response.
2)
Alarm response for hand-held survey instrument
a)
If contamination is indicated, remain in the area and notify the Radiological
Control personnel.
b)
Minimize cross contamination. For example, put a glove on a contaminated
hand while waiting for the Radiological Control personnel to arrive.
3)
Portal monitors
(Insert facility-specific information.)

Radiation Areas (RAs)
RAs are any areas accessible to individuals in which radiation levels could result in an
individual's receiving a deep dose equivalent in excess of 5 mrem/hr. This is established
based on dose rates at 30 cm from the source of radiation.
a.
Posting Requirements:
"CAUTION, RADIATION AREA"
Additionally, the posting may state:
"Personnel Dosimetry Required for Entry"
b.
Minimum requirements for unescorted entry should be:
1)
Appropriate training, such as Radiological Worker I Training.
2)
Personnel dosimeter.
3)
Worker's signature on the RWP, as applicable.
4)
(Insert facility-specific information.)
c.
Minimum requirements for working in an RA
1)
Don't loiter in the area.
2)
Follow proper emergency response to abnormal situations.
3)
Avoid hot spots.
Hot spots are localized sources of radiation or radioactive material normally within
facility piping or equipment. The radiation levels of hot spots exceed the general
area radiation level by more than a factor of 5 and are greater than 100 mrem per
hour on contact.
