Module 10.2: Practical Factors
State appropriate actions to take when a radiation
area monitor alarms.
Record appropriate information on RWP upon exit.
The practical factor exercise provided an opportunity for
each student to practice the skills required to safely perform
work within a simulated High Radiation Area.
Review Evaluation Rules/Process
Each facility must develop a practical factors
evaluation. Incorporating the requirements of the
DOE Radiological Control Technical Standard and
facility-specific procedures is recommended
(guidance for conducting a practical factors
evaluation is contained in Attachment 1).
Review the skills to be evaluated for each student:
Donning 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.
Explain acceptable role-playing during evaluation
