Module 10.1: Practical Factors
Suggest: Using facility-specific posted instructions
and contamination control techniques, monitor for
contamination. If practical, have students do the
Incorporate lessons learned occurrences, if
applicable (demonstrate or discuss occurrences).
The practical factor exercise provided an opportunity for each
student to practice the skills required to safely perform work
within a simulated radiological area.
A. Review Evaluation Rules/Process
Each facility must develop a practical factors evaluation.
Incorporating the requirements of the DOE Radiological
Control Standard is recommended, and facility-specific
procedures should also be included (guidance for conducting
a practical factors evaluation is contained in Attachment 1).
Review areas to be evaluated
Students should be evaluated based on:
Wearing of dosimeter(s).
Compliance with RWP, work documents.
Compliance with facility-specific entry procedures.
Job or task performance
Minimization of dose.
Compliance with facility-specific procedures and
Response to abnormal situation(s)
Exiting simulated area
Compliance with facility-specific procedures.
