Radiological Training for Accelerator Facilities
Special instruments may be needed for monitoring residual activity in materials depending
N Nature of material.
N Physical form (e.g., liquids).
Types of work area surveys include:
N Radiation (dose rate) surveys.
N Loose surface contamination surveys.
N Air sampling, including continuous air monitoring.
EO-17 STATE site requirements for removing material from beam enclosure.
The purpose of monitoring materials is to ensure radioactive materials are identified and
controlled within radiologically controlled areas. All items/materials must be surveyed
prior to removal from areas of potential activation/contamination.
Typically this includes any material inside the beam enclosures, targets and shielded
